A New Home Checklist

Buying a new home can be an exciting yet nerve-wracking experience. Make sure your new home is up-to-date with any inspections to ease some of your nerves! In order to ensure your house will be safe and comfortable for you, consider this checklist:

Test the Thermostat

You want the temperature in your home to keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer, right? Check your new thermostat to make sure it is working properly. If you find any issues, you can contact a licensed HVAC expert to help.

Check Your HVAC System

It’s important to find out the exact age of the unit to better determine how long it will last for. Also, make sure the system is functioning correctly and that the filters are clean. You may need to hire an HVAC professional to test the flow for you. They can help you best understand the quality of the HVAC system in your house!

Inspect for Mold, Mildew, and Asbestos

Any one of these things can cause serious health issues to humans. Bathrooms are often the most common place to find mold and mildew spots. Double-check these areas for potential dangers. Also, depending on when the home was built, you may have to test for asbestos. Asbestos is dangerous for humans to inhale for long periods of time, so you don’t want it in your home!

Check for Bugs or Pests

No one wants little critters running around their home! Inspect the home for any kind of ants, termites or rodents. Bugs, such as termites, can cause serious damage to a house and it’s foundations. Fix and seal any openings you may have throughout the home and keep everything clean to avoid any coming back.

Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors

These devices are vital for protecting you or your family from house fires. You should test them to make sure they are working like they’re supposed to. Your detectors should actually be checked at least once a month to ensure your safety!
