3 HVAC Tips First-Time Homeowners Should Know, Cambridge, Ohio

Buying a home for the first time is exciting, but if you are like many new owners, learning the ins and outs of property care comes with a learning curve. For example, though HVAC services are necessary, they can often be overlooked. However, to remain comfortable year-round, you need to become acquainted with your heating and cooling system and its care requirements.

How to Care for Your HVAC System

1. Determine Which Type You Own

There are a few different types of heating, cooling, and ventilation setups. While some homes may have both an air conditioner and a gas furnace, others might only rely on a heat pump that both cools and heats. It's also possible your home uses a boiler, which requires oil, propane, or natural gas to operate. If you didn't clarify these details with your real estate agent, now is the time to learn everything you can about your home's HVAC setup to schedule and provide accurate maintenance.

2. Change the Air Filtershvac service

An essential task all HVAC operators must remember is to replace the air filter every 30 to 90 days. Doing so will help protect your indoor air quality and ensure air can flow through the system without obstruction. If it cannot, the system will have to work harder to heat or cool the home, which will put extra pressure on parts and shorten its life span. 

3. Schedule Regular HVAC Service

Most homes need HVAC services twice a year—in the spring and fall. Having maintenance and repairs performed at these intervals will ensure the system is prepared to handle the heavy workload of summer and winter. It also helps catch any damage from the previous season. Catching small problems will prevent larger and costlier ones from arising. It's also an effective practice for increasing your heating and cooling system’s life span, while staying on top of its efficiency.
