When you buy a new home, the home may be several years to several decades old, which means the home's systems are not brand new. And the home's air conditioning and heating system need to work well whether you move in during summer or winter. So when you are looking to buy a new home, here are some tips to help make sure its HVAC and air conditioning is working and functions properly.
Complete a Home Inspection
Before you close on your new home, you will want to hire a professional inspection to make sure the home's systems and components, such as the HVAC and air conditioner work well and have no defects or damage. For example, your inspector can check the condenser coil's of your air conditioner to make sure they are maintained properly and clean of debris and dust, which can effect the system's entire efficiency.
Or the inspector can check for any cracks or holes in the system's coolant system and look at the system's overall condition. If the system's mechanics have not been oiled and taken care of, this will b evident in the inspection's report.
After the home inspector looks at your HVAC system and all the home's other components, they will compile their findings in a report to you. With this information, you can decide to adjust your purchase price on the home or you can cancel your contract to purchase the home.
Buy a Home Warranty
A home warranty is a great type of insurance or protection that you can buy with the purchase of any home of any age to give you peace of mind. A home warranty provides coverage on the home's systems, components, and appliances in the home, especially when you don't know how long they have been used or how much more life they have in them. A home inspection can only tell you the current state of the home's systems, but cannot predict how long it will continue working.
You can buy a home warranty to cover your home's HVAC and air conditioning, for example or any break downs and necessary replacements. So, if you move in during the heat of summer and your air conditioner coils freeze up the first weekend you live in the home, your home warranty coverage will hire a professional HVAC technician to service and repair your air conditioner. or if your new home's working air conditioner breaks and needs replacement, your home warranty coverage can help you out with that.
