As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new house. There an abundance of items on your to-do list, from getting furniture to tackling the landscape.
Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement sidetrack you from learning how different 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 stay comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.
So, what do you need to 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 contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
- 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 examine your thermostat to understand where you can gain efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to regulate the temperature when you are away from the home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is critical to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Mayeuxs AC & Heating in Norco and St. Charles Parish can give you 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 replace the air filter. Air filters are typically located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
