Often when you buy a home, there will be some major appliances that are left behind by a previous owner. It could be that they are moving into a place where there already are appliances, or it could be that they decided to include them in the sale. There could be serious problems with appliances that you would now need to deal with, so it’s important to ensure that they are safe to keep and operate. You should also take care to properly maintain them since this will extend their life and save you money in the long run.
One of the most important things that you can do for your appliances is to ensure they have proper airflow. You should never block vents and filters should be replaced regularly.
You also need to be careful so as to not damage electrical cords and connections. If you have to move an appliance, ensure you know where the cord is located at all times so that it doesn’t get pinched.
