Buying that Edmonton house that you always dreamed of is happiness which cannot be described. We get excited sometimes that we forget to do a few of the important things after we move-in.
Here are some things to do after you buy that Edmonton house
Main Water Shut-Off Valve Location
Know where the main water shut-off valve is located after you move-in to your new Edmonton home because if there is any water emergency in the near future it’s better for you to know where it is located. Once you know where the location is, keep its area clear from brush and debris so it can be easily access in any given situation.
HVAC Filters Remembrance
The HVAC helps maintain good indoor air quality through adequate ventilation with filtration and provide thermal comfort which makes any Edmonton house comfortable. It is an important part of a homeowner’s Edmonton house
Better stock a year’s supply of filters at once and remember to change the air filters of the HVAC bimonthly, by doing this simple task can extend the life of the heating and cooling unit .
Test the Smoke Detector
Fire is the last thing on the minds of new homeowner’s with them being consumed with the hustle of moving in and getting settled. But always remember that safety is the top priority inside an Edmonton house. If the Edmonton house already has smoke detectors, new homeowners should replace the batteries as soon as possible. If there is a lack of smoke detectors better yet invest in them.
Having a decent insurance is crucial for new Edmonton homeowners. Check that your insurance policy includes fire and flood protection because insurance and replacement coverage is needed to be place before you go escrow.
You will never know what the future might bring so it’s better to prepare for it.
Label the Electric Box
When you move in to your new Edmonton house spare some time labelling all the breakers in your electrical box. It’s better to be prepared when the power goes out for the first time or an emergency situation appears.
Having your own Edmonton home comes with a set of responsibilities, including some things you may not even know about. So before you get comfortable with your new Edmonton home, ask yourself ‘am I forgetting to do something?’
