It is even a smart idea to change the garage door opener/receiver. You want your new home to be as safe as possible, so put changing your locks at the very top of your to do list.

Before Your Move In; Become Familiar With Your New Home’s Utilities

Locate your new home’s fuse box and make sure every fuse is in good working condition. You will also want to locate your main water valve and gas shut off areas as well. Inspect your air conditioning unit and clear out any debris that may be cluttered around it. While you’re at it, take the time to replace existing air vents with new ones as well. Taking the time to inspect these areas will pay off and help you become more familiar with your new home.
