New Home HVAC Advice

If you have recently purchased a new home for you and your family, then you want to get to know all of its different systems, including the HVAC system. Knowing your home well is going to be the best way for you to make sure you are in the best position for properly taking care of it. Here are some things to learn about your HVAC system and ways to care for your system:

Find out how old and efficient the system is – You want to know how old your home's HVAC system is, so you can get a better idea of how well it is going to perform and how efficient it will be on your energy bill. If it is older, you can count on it costing you a bit more. If you have a pretty new system, then as long as it has a good SEER rating, then you can count on lower bills.

Learn about the system's warranty – You want to find out whether there is still a warranty on the system. You also want to make sure you have a good understanding of the terms and conditions of the warranty, so you are well aware of what's covered and know what you can and can't do in order to avoid voiding the warranty.

Look over the information on the previous inspection and repair results – You want to go over the previous inspection results from when the system has been looked at or worked on by professional HVAC technicians. This will help you know whether the system has been solid with no problems, or whether it has been starting to have issues here and there and what those issues are.

Make sure you go over the system yourself – As soon as you are in the home you are going to want to put a new filter in it and then make sure you clean or replace it regularly. Also, verify the vents are all open and that they are free of dust and pointed toward the center of the rooms. Check the outside compressor area and remove any overgrowth, foliage or other debris that is within a two feet radius of the compressor. Look to see if the compressor will be taking on a lot of direct sunlight during hot summer days and have something installed to provide it with shade if this is the case.

Creating A Cleaner Home

Oftentimes, when people think about cleanliness and sanitation, they overlook the importance of well-draining pipes. Unfortunately, if you aren't careful, plumbing can cause more problems than you could ever imagine. I started thinking carefully about different things that I could do to make my home a little more sanitary, and a few months ago I decided to create a cleaner home by having my pipes carefully inspected. They were hopelessly damaged, but within a few days, the plumber completely overhauled the entire system and things were moving along a lot better. This website is all about creating a clean, sanitary home that you will love.
