6 Point HVAC Checklist for Moving into Your New Cincinnati Home


Congratulations on your new Cincinnati home and welcome to your new community! Now that you are finishing up your packing and getting settled in, take the time to look over your HVAC system. Researching a few important facts about your heating and air conditioning system will save you time and money in the long run. Here is a 6 point HVAC system checklist to help you evaluate your system and make sure your home is comfortable throughout the year. We highly recommend you contact Nelson Comfort for any HVAC installs or maintenance issues.

1. Evaluate Previous Owners Maintenance

Evaluate how well the previous owner maintained and cared for your HVAC system. If the previous owner failed to schedule regular maintenance, then your system may not run to its peak performance.

2. Review Home Inspection Evaluation

When you move into your new home, take the time to review the home inspection evaluation for any issues that need to be addressed. Although this can be helpful information, be aware that not all home inspectors are thorough or knowledgeable enough in comfort system equipment to be of great help. It’s best to schedule a heating and cooling specialist to identify repairs or problems with your system.

3. Change Air Filters

Change your air filters in your new home when you move in. There’s no guarantee when the filter was last changed especially if the house has sat for a long period of time. Additionally, a new, clean filter will improve your heating and cooling capabilities of your HVAC system immediately. Also, if you are concerned about environmental irritants or allergies, it’s a good idea to change the filter.

4. Check Out Your Landscaping

Make sure your outdoor AC unit is free of dirt, debris, foliage and branches. The outdoor part of your HVAC system is usually the most expensive part of the system so it’s important to keep it safe from external hazards such as falling branches.

5. Schedule Repairs

Take the time to schedule a consultation with a Cincinnati HVAC repair specialist. Don’t attempt to perform the repairs yourself as you may run into trouble and end up costing more in the long run.

6. Find a Local HVAC Company

Connect with an HVAC company in your new community. Have your system checked and schedule seasonal or yearly maintenance.

When you move into your new Cincinnati home, make your HVAC a priority to check. Use this 6 point checklist to evaluate what is going on with your system and prepare for the coming year. Most of all, find a local HVAC company in Cincinnati to preform seasonal maintenance. If you are located in Cincinnati, we recommend Nelson Comfort.
