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 place is exciting! Don’t let that excitement divert you from learning how different components in your home works—including your HVAC system. If it’s summer when you are moving into your new home, you’ll want to pay special attention to your air conditioner. This will help ensure you keep comfortable in your new home during the warmer temps.

So, what should you know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you have the make and model of your system. This should be indicated on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to contact a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general questions.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and monitoring energy costs, your thermostat can be extremely helpful. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can earn efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to alter the temperature when you are away from the home.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Regular maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to operate properly and pinpoint any issues before they become costlier to fix. Symbiont Service Corp in Englewood can give you the service that you need, and discuss some tips on efficiency and how to improve indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of regular maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner working efficiently is to switch 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.
