The first thing that a new home owner should do as soon as the papers are being drawn up is to have a company come to examine the heating and air conditioning to make sure you are not getting stuck with a problem.
Way to meet the neighbors
You first need to find a good residential Heating and air service in the area that you have moved to. This is a perfect way to meet your new neighbors using this question as a way to start a conversation about who they use for residential heating and air service.
When you call them, tell them that you are buying a new house and have them come and check the heating and air conditioning before you move in. This is also a good time to have them clean the dust out of the air ducts and put in a new filter. All of this will ensure that you have clean air in your new house the day you move in. If the units are really old you might need to think about getting new units and the company probably has brand named units that they carry.
If you live in Texas or anywhere in the south, you usually use air conditioning and heating during most of the months of the year. In Texas one day will be cold and the next will be hot – this is all due to the way the wind is blowing as wind coming from the Gulf of Mexico can make a winter day really too hot. But this is just another reason to have your air and heating units clean and ready to use. Plus with global climate change – you never know what the weather is going to be anywhere these days.
If you are happy with the company that you are using for this check-up, you are already registered with them and you won’t have to do all the research that goes into a new company when you first start using them.
