Congratulations on your new Fort Myers, Florida, home! Buying your first home is an exciting time that presents all sorts of new life changes and things to learn. We’ve created this small guide to help first-time homeowners discover what they need to consider about their new home’s climate control system.

HVAC Details

When it comes to learning about your new home’s HVAC system, you’re going to want to find out as many details as possible. If your system and/or your home is older, it may be in your best interest to get your HVAC system sized to make sure it’s an appropriate choice for your home. Older systems may have a shorter lifespan, so knowing your system’s age can help you estimate when it may need to be replaced.

Next, check out what brand and style it is. Knowing your HVAC system’s components and how they work helps you anticipate any issues that might come up in the future.

Potential Upgrades

Efficiency helps keep costs down and can improve home comfort. Learn more about the details of your current HVAC’s efficiency, including its SEER rating and any additional features, like zoning or smart thermostats, that may already be in place in your home.

Smart thermostats are a great investment for first-time homeowners since they take a lot of the guesswork out of determining the best schedule and temperatures for your new home. Other HVAC products to consider are dehumidifiers for Florida’s humid summers, ductless mini-split air conditioners if you want to enhance your indoor comfort, and ventilators if you want fresh air inside your home.
