yearly maintenance on your homeSummer is here and it’s time to take a look around your home to see what, if any, preventative maintenance is needed. With this checklist and a couple of weekends you’ll feel secure knowing that your home is being well-maintained.

5 Tips To Maintaining Your Home

 

  • A yearly inspection of your best Carrier air conditioners should keep air flowing nicely through your home, at the temperature you prefer. You can do this yourself or hire a professional to make it easy. At the very least, change the air filter (this really should be done monthly). If you do not have an HVAC system, you probably have an air purifier for your home, this filter should also be changed monthly. If you do not have one of those, consult the reviews of the best indoor air purifiers on the market and find one suitable for your home. I strongly suggest one for your health and that of your family, there are so many toxins and pollutants in our everyday products, we have to do what we can to lessen our exposure.
  • Evaluate the siding, particularly if it is wood, on your home. Repair any that has been exposed to moisture before it becomes a larger issue and complete any needed painting while the weather is warm.
  • Check the slant and grade of the ground around your home. It should flow away from the foundation, not towards it, to avoid flooding and puddles during storms.
  • Consider pruning plants and determining the health of large trees to avoid future problems.
  • Review your roof, attic, crawl space, basement, and fireplace chimney, making sure all pieces and parts are securely attached to avoid leaks and further damage.

Checking over these areas in your home and making any necessary repairs will allow to enjoy your weekends more this summer and take advantage of any available sunshine! Enjoy the warm weather!
