Before the heat kicks in, make sure to go through your spring home maintenance checklist for North Dallas.
These tasks will help you better care for your home. In turn, you’ll avoid unnecessary repairs and extend the life of major systems like your HVAC unit. Plus, your health and wallet will thank you.
Here are the 5 things you need to do this spring to make sure your home is being properly maintained.
The fall and winter months can do a number on the existing caulk in your home or business. That’s why we recommend you add re-caulking your windows and exterior doors to your spring home maintenance checklist.
Handling this task will help prevent water from leaking into your home through small cracks and can deter insects and rodents from trying to enter your home. This can effectively protect your home from water damage and the associated cost that comes with it.
Have you been in your attic lately?
If not, then you should probably take a look around. A good attic ventilation system will allow fresh air to enter while forcing the hotter air out.
This task isn’t just about keeping your attic at a bearable temperature. Proper attic ventilation helps to protect your roof and any systems that are installed there.
Ready for summer?
Needless to say, it’s going to be a hot one. We are in Texas, after all. While you’re going through your home maintenance checklist for North Dallas, make sure to schedule an AC tune-up. This will ensure your HVAC system is in good working order. It will also ensure your system is up to the task of keeping you cool and comfortable all summer long.
Hopefully you’re changing your air filters regularly. However, if they haven’t been changed in a while, make it a priority on your spring home maintenance checklist.
Swapping out your old, used air filter for a new one is imperative to your health and your HVAC system’s ability to do its job. Not only can dirty filters lead to health complications, but they can also drastically reduce your HVAC system’s work life.
Just like your HVAC system, your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors don’t last forever. If your smoke alarm and/or carbon monoxide detector aren’t working, you’re risking your health. Working on your HVAC system yourself is a common cause of carbon monoxide poisoning, so leave this home maintenance item to the experts.
Keep you and your family safe by testing your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Change batteries as needed. And make sure to replace them with new alarms and detectors when they've reached the age for recommended replacement.
As we dive into spring, it’s the perfect time to go through your home maintenance checklist for North Dallas.
Since a well-functioning HVAC system is important to your health, comfort, and wallet, make sure to schedule your tune-up. We’ll come by and assess your system to make sure it’s ready to get you through the summer comfortably.
