Help!!

I am not an expert like a lot of posters on this board, so please
forgive such a basic question. I am going to be a new homeowner, and would like some general information on
the workings of home systems such as: HVAC, heater, water.
Any links or info would help. I have very limitted knowledge base
when it comes to house issues at all.

Thanks again everyone!!

read through the posts on this site and others like it, although many of the others (hvac-talk especially) are mainly for those of us in the business and homeowners generally get slammed. what kind of system is in this new home? give us some details, and we can run you through the sequence of operations, and tell you how it works and what to look for. model # and brand are important

I am impressed with these two websites to get you started:
www.howstuffworks.com/
howthingswork.virginia.edu/

You get a sample for air conditioners at:

I ran a search on Google.com for more using the search words:

Wink When you think you would like to buy a home

Hire your own inspector to evaluate the property to get a punch list of things to correct or deduct from the purchase price that you will end up fixing. The VA is a good place to start if the purchaser has served the country...they are pickey and gauranty loans too.
This insures they don't overpay and the property is in good working order.
