As a first-time homebuyer, you’re just getting settled in your new house. There may be several tasks on your to-do list, from getting furniture to fixing the landscape.
Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract you from learning 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 through 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 located 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 sustaining 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 adjust the temperature even if you aren’t at home.
- Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Ongoing maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. ACE Solutions in Hasbrouck Heights can provide you with the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to increase indoor air quality and home comfort.
- Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to switch the air filter. Air filters are commonly located in the blower compartment of your furnace, in an attached filter case or in a wall-mounted return air grille.
