You Are All Unpacked ... Now What?

You finally closed on your new home and you're unpacked and enjoying your new place! 

Before you sit back and relax too much, there are a few things you should do around the house.

  • Replace all batteries in smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors ... you have no idea when this has been done before and chances are they will signal low battery in the middle of the night while you're sleeping!
  • Replace all air filters throughout your home ... again you have no idea when this has been done prior to you owning the home so it's nice to have a fresh start!
  • Wrap your hot water heater in an insulation blanket to help with energy effeciency. It's a quick and cheap way to help keep your monthly bills lower.
  • Make sure your hotwater heater is set at about 120 degrees (optimum suggested temp)
  • Check insulation in the attic and basement to make sure it's all secure and doing the best job possible.
  • Install a programable thermostat ... the new Nest® thermostats are GREAT!
  • Make sure all fittings for outdoor hoses have no leaks ... this can be a HUGE waste of water and really make your water bill shocking!
  • Check the dryer vent to make sure there are no blockages either from lint or even a nest from an unwanted critter!

Now ... Sit Back and Relax and ENJOY YOUR NEW HOME!

Do not like the home purchased. Call your realtor to put it on the market....

Hopefully the home inspector caught all this and much of it was remedied first.

That last comment was supposed to have a humorous tone to it. I wasn't sure if I came off that way hahaha!
