Home Maintenance Checklist for New Homeowners

A new home is not only a major financial responsibility but also requires regular maintenance on your part. If you’ve just purchased a new home, be sure to tackle these essential home maintenance steps.

After Purchase

Making a few simple improvements early on will improve home comfort and give you major energy savings for years to come.

Get an energy audit

This gives you valuable information about your new home’s efficiency and helps you determine which upgrades to prioritize.

Schedule HVAC maintenance

Tune-ups for your heating and AC systems ensure that these systems are optimized for efficient home heating and cooling.

Get a plumbing inspection

This helps you pinpoint efficiency issues and address minor problems before they become larger ones.

Seal air leaks

This eliminates holes and cracks which allow conditioned air to escape and outside air to enter, reducing drafts, lowering energy bills, and increasing comfort.

Upgrade insulation

Insulation helps stabilize indoor temperatures, lowering your energy bills and keeping your home more comfortable year-round.

Inspect your windows

Once your home is sealed and insulated, upgrading old, single pane windows can greatly improve home efficiency.


Check or replace HVAC filters

This keeps your indoor air clean and prevents HVAC equipment from overheating.

Twice a Year

Replace smoke/carbon monoxide detector batteries

Ensure your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are keeping your home safe.

Deep clean your house

This keeps your home in top shape and lets you catch problems which could go unnoticed.


Schedule HVAC maintenance

Heating and AC systems need annual maintenance to continue running at their best.

Get a plumbing inspection

Annual inspections keep your plumbing system free of leaks, clogs, and damage.

Inspect roofing for damage

Small leaks and missing shingles can quickly lead to damage and costly repairs.

Clean out gutters in spring

Gutters tend to collect leaves and grime during the fall and winter.
