The first thing to do in a new home

When you first move into a new home there is a lot of things to do and consider.

  • One of those things is to unpack everything and get the house in order so that it is livable of course.

Another thing that needs to be done, depending on the age of the house and the HVAC system, is to have the ductwork cleaned. Having your ductwork cleaned in an older house when first moving in is pretty vital. A lot of people do not even think about this, and then they end up with a huge heating and air conditioning repair bill shortly after they have moved in. This is because the central heating and air conditioning system is all clogged, and it forces it to break down in some way. Eventually, if you have clogged ductwork, it could lead to the central heating and air conditioning system completely breaking its motor. This is because it works overtime trying to pump the heating or the cooling through all that clogged ductwork! Having your ductwork cleaned is not as big of a deal as it sounds. If you are not familiar with the process of ductwork cleaning, go look up a few videos on it. You can actually watch the entire ductwork cleaning process and find that although it can be a bit complex, your heating and air conditioning company will have a certified heating and cooling specialist working on it completely and know exactly what they are doing. Ductwork cleaning takes about an hour to an hour and a half if done correctly.
