Moving Tips for Homeowners in Massachusetts
Whether you're a first-time or long-term homeowner, moving never seems to get less chaotic. Once you buy your home, there are several essentials you need to take care of to ensure your family's safety and comfort.
- Schedule service for your HVAC equipment
Spring is the season to have heating and cooling equipment serviced by an HVAC service technician. If your new home has central air conditioning or a ductless mini-split A/C system, it is a good idea to schedule annual maintenance as soon as possible. That way your air conditioner is ready to beat the heat when summer rolls around. Annual maintenance will help your A/C equipment run more efficiently, use less energy, and reduce the risk of breakdowns.
- Connect with a local fuel delivery provider
This time of year, heating fuel may not be on the top of your mind. But living in Massachusetts means heating your home almost three quarters of the year! Find a local heating company that delivers the fuel you need, whether that's heating oil, Bioheat® fuel, or kerosene. You can shop around for the right fit, but choosing a full-service company that can deliver fuel and provide HVAC service is a smart move to make this simpler.
- Find the best plumber in town
If you have a plumbing emergency, do you know who to call? Make sure you get the best service and prices by looking for a plumbing company ahead of time. If your full-service energy provider of choice also has a plumbing staff, well that's three for three!
- Schedule a home energy audit
During the buying process you likely looked into the energy efficiency of your new home. Having a complete home energy audit done is a great way to better understand your home's current efficiency and where there might be room for improvement. This will help when you make future modifications to your home down the road.
- Think about upgrades
When you think about making a new home your own, don't forget about the home comfort equipment! After your tune-ups and home energy audit, you will have a better understanding of your current heating and cooling systems. Depending on their age and efficiency, it could be a smart move to invest in new, high-efficiency models.
