Taylor, MI: New Homeowner Tips

new home  For new homowners, buying a home and moving can be very stressful. There is so much to coordinate and check out when deciding on your dream home. Moving can be expensive and the responsibilities of becoming new homeowners, overwhelming. One thing many homeowners don’t take their time to inspect on a new home is their furnace and air conditioning unit to see how your HVAC unit can save money and ultimately reduce stress over time.

Some things to consider are ceiling fans. Ceiling fans (especially when used while away from home) can save energy. Better air circulation allows you to bump your thermostat up one or two degrees in the summer and down one or two degrees in the winter. These small degrees can save you money

Consider a having a programmable thermostat installed. Then it automatically adjusts your temperature for your air conditioner or furnance when you are not home to save you money.

Another thing to take a look at is your filters to improve indoor air quality. Start a schedule to know when to replace your filters old air filters cause your HVAC unit to work harder which cost more money and shortens the life of your HVAC unit.

Check your air vents and see if they are clear of dust and miscellaneous objects.  If they are dirty clean them. Dirty ducks cause poor air quality and air circulation.

Check your windows. Mark any air leaks in floods, windows, and doors for repair.

Air leaks are money leaks and as new homeowners, the last thing you want to think about is another repair because that means more money. But pay now and you can save later.
