As a new homeowner in North Carolina, you need to realize that your heating and cooling system will be your key to consistent indoor comfort and uninterrupted enjoyment of your new home. By familiarizing yourself with your system, making sure it starts out in optimal running condition and committing to a few helpful routines early on, you can help avoid some of the issues that often arise over time while also keeping your system running as efficiently as possible.
Not only will an efficiently running system bring you greater comfort — it will also save you money on lower energy costs, fewer repairs, and longer system life. There are several things you can do to make sure your system starts off on the right foot and continues to provide efficient, worry-free service for years to come.
Have Your HVAC System Inspected by the Experts at Carolina Comfort Air
Even if you had a home inspection before purchasing your new home — and that inspection included your HVAC system — it’s always smart to have an HVAC expert inspect the system more thoroughly before you begin using it on a regular basis.
Home inspectors face the huge task of inspecting your entire home so they simply can’t devote as much time to inspecting your system as an HVAC expert can. It is possible for them to miss issues that an HVAC specialist would catch.
The best way to ensure your comfort and safety and assess the functionality and efficiency of your system as you prepare for your new life in your Central or Eastern North Carolina home is to have it inspected by a Carolina Comfort Air HVAC specialist.
Commit to Consistent Long-Term HVAC Maintenance Practices
Some things you can do to help ensure consistently trouble-free heating and cooling from your new home’s HVAC system:
- Make HVAC Maintenance a Priority – Have your system checked and tuned up twice each year
- Clean or Change Your Air Filters Regularly – Visually inspect them monthly and clean or change as needed
- Check Your Outdoor Unit Periodically – Clear away any debris around the unit or inside the drain pan
- Keep all Grilles and Registers Clear – Dust, debris and other obstructions can block proper airflow or contribute to poor indoor air quality
- Have Your New Home’s Insulation Checked – If insulation is inadequate, consider an upgrade
Taking the time to properly care for your HVAC system will help you enjoy worry-free performance for years to come. For answers to your HVAC maintenance questions, contact Carolina Comfort Air today!
