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 purchasing furniture to tackling the landscape.

Owning your first house is exciting! Don’t let that excitement distract 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 be sure you remain comfortable in your new home through the warmer temps.

So, what do you need to know?

  1. Identify Your System—Make sure you know the make and model of your system. This should be located on the equipment itself. It will be helpful if you need to get in touch with a professional for repair, routine maintenance or general challenges.
  2. Get to Know the Thermostat—When it comes to keeping indoor comfort and watching energy costs, your thermostat can be one of your best friends. Take the time to look over your thermostat to understand where you can find efficiencies—such as programmable thermostats that allow you to adjust the temperature even when you are gone.
  3. Find a Reputable HVAC Company—Routine maintenance is key to making sure your air conditioner continues to work properly and find any issues before they become costlier to fix. McNatt Inc in Robstown can give you the service that you need, and share some tips on efficiency and how to enhance indoor air quality and home comfort.
  4. Don’t Forget Your Filter—Outside of routine maintenance, one of the best ways to keep your air conditioner operating 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.
