Important Points To Check When You Move Into A New Home
Moving into a new property is an exciting time. You get to experience all the thrills of making a new start. It’s important not to get carried away with the good feelings and to make sure you spend time making necessary checks and changes around your new home. It does not take too long to do all the things we are going to suggest and you get the benefit in the long run.
So what are the points you need to check when you move home and why are they so important? Here is a list of some of the most important ones.
Change the door locks
This is not so much something you should check as an action you should take. Aside from the people who were living in the property previously there could be lots of others who have keys to access your home. It’s always a good idea to change the locks so you can have simple peace of mind.
Have the heating and cooling system checked out
The heating and cooling system in your new home may seem as though it’s working just fine but it’s still worth getting it checked out by a professional. If you hire a professional engineer to complete the checks you can also ask them to carry out a complete service for you. This way you know the system is going to work efficiently when you need it.
Find out where the water shut-off valves are
This is a simple thing to do and probably something you can just ask the previous owner about. Although it’s simple it’s also very important. If you are unlucky enough to experience a water leak or a burst pipe in your home you need to be able to shut the water supply off as quickly as possible.
Have your home plumbing checked
We have just mentioned some potential water disasters in your home. One of the best ways of reducing the risk of them happening is to have the plumbing in your new home checked out when you move in. You should find a reliable plumber in Sydney and ask them to carry out a full check of the plumbing system. Doing this provides you with two benefits. The first benefit is that, after the check, you know the plumbing in your home is working as it should. The second benefit is that you find a plumber that you can trust and that you can turn to should you ever have a plumbing emergency to deal with.
Have the electrics in your home checked
As with the plumbing in your new home, it’s important to know that the electrical systems are working efficiently. This is why you should hire a qualified electrician to take a look at the electrics in the property and rectify any problems they find.
All these points should be checked when you first move into a new property. That way you have peace of mind when you start living at your new address.
