As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new home. There are likely a lot of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from getting to know how all of the components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If you are moving into your new home during the hotter months, you’ll want to pay even more attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep comfortable in your new home throughout the warmer temps.
So, what should you know?
- Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be labeled on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to reach out to a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general concerns.
- Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to maintaining indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to review your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature even when you are gone.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. in Northglenn can offer the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to improve indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of ongoing maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner running efficiently is to exchange the air filter. Air filters are usually located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
