New Homeowner Heating & Cooling Tips

New Homeowners E1519246010925

New home ownership is both exciting and stressful. The many systems a home is comprised of, all working together to keep you comfortable, can be complicated to understand. One of those many systems is your heating and cooling system, one of the most important systems in the home. Having even a small amount of knowledge on the components in this system can save you money on energy bills over time.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you purchase a home for the first time:

Make sure the heating and cooling system was installed properly

If the HVAC system installed in your home is over-sized, under-sized or the duct system was poorly designed, the system will not perform as advertised and you will likely see higher heating and cooling bills.

Find out if your heating and cooling system was maintained properly

It’s important to know how old your “new” home’s heating and cooling system is and whether or not it was properly maintained. If you weren’t able to get this information from the previous homeowners themselves, you can always turn to the HVAC company that they used, if the previous owner had their system maintained regularly it’s easy to get inspection reports and find out whether or not there were any problems or repairs.

Have regular maintenance performed on your heating and cooling system

Having regular maintenance performed on your heating and cooling system can help keep your equipment running smoothly and may extend the life of your equipment by as much as 3 to 5 years.

Change air filters

Just like you need maintenance on your car, your heating and cooling system needs maintenance too. Changing your air filter is a simple way to help your system heat and cool more efficiently, reduce allergens and save you money.

Use window treatments

If used correctly, window treatments can reduce the amount of work your heating and cooling system has to perform. Keep window treatments closed during the day to block out the sun’s heat during the warmest months and open your window treatments during the colder months to bring in sunlight and warmth.

They renovated the utility space by removing a soft water conditioner, a hot water heater, replaced a humidifier, installed an on- the- wall water heater, a UV light to disinfect the furnace air flow, and a digital humidity controller. They replaced all the old water valves with more modern ones and rearranged the piping and ductwork in the space.
