Homeowner information guide
- Furnace Filter
Change the furnace filter on a monthly basis to achieve maximum efficiency.
Know the location of the main water shut-off valve inside the house.
The fireplace operates with propane gas. Do not attempt to burn anything in the fireplace other than the logs provided. Refer to the owner’s manual for additional assistance.
The new water-saving commodes required by law use only 1.6 gallons of water to flush. Do not overload commodes and have a plunger in your home.
If one or more electrical outlets are not working, check the red reset button on the GFI plug. If the outlets still do not work, check the breaker in the electrical panel.
Read all owners manuals to get maximum efficiency and for maximum safety.
- Garage Door
If the electricity goes out and the garage door will not open, pull the red cord hanging from the garage door to disconnect the opener. The garage door may now be opened manually. When the power is restored, press the opener button on the wall and the opener will re-engage itself.
- Garbage Disposal
Run water during use of the disposal.
Check all gutters one time per year to be sure there are no blockages.
Shrubs, bushes, and sod/grass are not covered under the builder’s warranty due to the unpredictable nature of Kentucky weather. All landscaping should be watered as needed.
- Crawl Space
Be sure to open air vents in the summer and to close them in the winter.
- Smoke Detectors
When a smoke detector chirps, the 9-volt battery needs to be replaced.
Minor cracks in concrete floors, walls, and sidewalks are common. These cracks do not require repair. Concrete is not covered under the builder’s warranty under any circumstance. Do not use salt to remove ice from concrete. Salt will destroy the concrete.
- Exterior Water Spigots
Disconnect hoses and all connectors from spigots any time the temperature may drop below 450.
