Do it Yourself Spring Maintenance Check List

We are all spending more time at home these days, waiting out the dreaded pandemic. What better time to work on the home and getting it to run as efficiently as possible?

We have put together this list of things you can do to improve the efficiency of you home for the oncoming summer.

First lets start with the door and windows:

    • Tighten and lubricate your door hinges
    • Check the weather stripping and caulking around doors and windows. Replace if necessary.
    • Check the screens on doors and windows and clean them. Replace if necessary.
    • Make sure the windows that face the sun directly have proper covering to prevent too much heat from entering. You can also buy a reflective tint for these windows which will keep the rays from heating your home.

Other in-home items:

  • Dust your ceiling fan blades. Make sure to set them to turn counterclockwise.
  • Test all your smoke alarms. Replace batteries if need be.
  • Check air filters for AC/furnace. Replace if necessary.
  • Remove logs and clean out fireplace.

You can have all these items done in one afternoon and you will be glad you did. Keeping your home safe and efficient saves time and money down the road and the piece of mind it offers is priceless.
