Spring has arrived and with it should come your annual home maintenance checklist. This handy guide details the most important home maintenance tasks you should complete as the weather warms up:
Checklist for Spring Home Maintenance
Give Your HVAC Unit Some Love
From using the heater all winter long to running the A/C in summer, your HVAC unit works hard to maintain a comfortable temperature in your home. To keep it functioning optimally, it’s important to schedule maintenance during intermittent seasons like spring and fall. A professional HVAC tune-up should also include a thorough cleaning of your furnace.
Search for Window Leaks
Eliminating window leaks will keep the cool air inside your home and the warm air outside. Inspect all windows for places where air can enter and escape. Check the caulking and weather stripping as well to ensure no air or water is making its way into the house. This will help reduce your energy bills, as your HVAC unit will not have to work as hard to maintain the desired temperature.
Spot Water Leaks
Another way you can increase your home’s energy efficiency is by fixing any water leaks. Make sure to inspect every area where water flows, including sprinkler systems, pipes under the sink and faucets. Take a look at your hot water heater too and make sure you don’t see signs of corrosion, which can lead to leakage.
Get Your Roof Inspected
With winter in the rearview, it’s wise to schedule a roof inspection to make sure no damage has occurred. Getting a roof inspection completed also ensures that no animals are nesting in your roof. A roofing technician will be able to identify and fix any damage before it becomes a serious problem that affects other areas of your home.
