Summer is here! As we welcome the warmer days of summer, it's the perfect time to ensure your home is in top shape to handle the heat and potential summer storms. From keeping your cool with air conditioning upkeep to ensuring your outdoor spaces are lush and inviting, these steps will prepare your home for a season of relaxation and enjoyment.

  • Air Conditioner Maintenance: Schedule a professional tune-up for your air conditioning system to ensure it's running efficiently and effectively. This can help prevent breakdowns during heat waves and reduce energy costs. Don't forget to regularly replace or clean the air filters, which can improve air quality and system performance.
  • Roof and Gutter Check: Inspect your roof for any signs of damage like cracked or missing shingles and clear out gutters and downspouts. Summer storms can cause unexpected damage, and maintaining the roof and gutters can prevent water damage and improve drainage.
  • Windows and Doors: Check the seals around windows and doors to ensure they are tight and intact. This can help keep cool air in and hot air out, improving energy efficiency and comfort during the hot summer months.
  • Landscape and Sprinkler Tune-up: Consider planting trees or shrubs that provide shade to your home or installing awnings over windows that receive excessive sunlight. This not only enhances your home’s curb appeal but also helps in reducing cooling costs by naturally lowering the temperature. Make sure your home's sprinkler system is functioning correctly by checking for leaks, broken sprinkler heads, and clogged lines. Adjusting the timers and zones for optimal watering times can help conserve water and keep your lawn and plants healthy throughout the season.
  • Safety First: With the change in season, it's a great reminder to check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries if needed and test them out to ensure they're in tip-top shape.

Regular maintenance not only helps in avoiding costly repairs but aims at enhancing your home's efficiency and comfort during the summer months.
