Moving Tips for New Homeowners

6/23/2014

Moving into a new home is exciting and a little bit intimidating, like taking the first step into a brand new world. There will always be challenges to face as you adjust to your new home, but sometimes changes can be much more difficult than necessary. Below are a few tips for making your move-in as smooth and simple as possible.

  • Check your insulation: Pay special attention to the insulation in the attic, as warm air tends to rise and escape through the ceiling if the insulation is sparse or of poor quality.
  • Install ceiling fans where necessary: Ceiling fans help to keep air circulating in a room and are a great way to keep your electricity bill low by limiting the work of your AC unit. 
  • Wrap water pipes: Wrapping the exposed pipes with insulation will ensure that your hot water is as hot as possible when it reaches your faucet, saving you energy.
  • Check the plumbing: Check toilets and sinks for leaks, stoppages, or any other plumbing issues that could affect your water bill or the safety of your home. 
  • Keep vents clear: HVAC vents can become clogged with dust or blocked by furniture, making it harder to circulate air through your home.
