Are you in the market for a new home in Central Florida? Want to buy but worried that you’re not sure what to look for? Well, before you put pen to paper on one of life’s biggest investments, make sure you’re looking for a few things.
Our Orlando plumbers provide three tips when purchasing a new home.
Worn Down Water Heater
A home’s water heater is essential for showering, washing dishes, washing clothes, and more. As they get older, they don’t work as effectively. And when they break down, they’re not the cheapest thing to replace.
Make sure you check the status of the home’s water heater to make sure it’s newer and working the way it should.
Old Septic System
Your septic and sewage is what takes waste away from your home. If it’s outdated and not working as it should, it may not be long after you purchase the home that you experience backups, clogs, and eventually an unpleasant surprise in your home or yard.
Clogged Drains or Leaks
It may seem like a strange thing to do, but you want to make sure before you buy the home that you’re turning on the water in various areas throughout the house. Not only does this show you the water pressure, but you can determine if there are any clogs.
You can also listen to various areas near your plumbing fixtures to hear a potential leak. These are two things you’ll definitely want to address prior to buying the home and get fixed before making the purchase.
