School is out and summer is in full swing! Sports are winding down a bit and a frantic-paced schedule is in the rearview mirror. This is a time to plan vacations, grill out with friends, and lounge around the pool for a while. In anticipation of entertaining, you might want to complete a few last-minute tasks around the house to make sure it is ready for guests. Conducting an Air Conditioner Tune Up will ensure that your HVAC system is ready to take on the wear and tear of summertime heat.
Late Spring Cleaning
If your schedule prevented a good cleaning at the beginning of spring, do it now. Vacuum, dust, change bedding, and clean drapes. This will remove dust and pollen, allergens that no guests need to breathe in. You will be surprised at the amount of dust you remove.
Air Conditioner Tune up
How long has it been since an HVAC technician cleaned and serviced your AC unit? Hands down, this is the most cost-effective measure you can take to keep your system running smoothly and efficiently. It extends the useful years of your entire HVAC system. A tune-up often catches small problems before they become large problems.
Change Your Air Filter
Schedule a filter change every three months. Every season is exactly three months long. Use the change of seasons as a reminder to change your HVAC air filter. All of the dust captured by the filter will no longer circulate throughout your home.
Inspect the Various Alarms
Your home should have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors installed. Push the red button to ensure each one functions properly. Replace batteries annually. If a detector does not function upon testing, it will need to be replaced and the old detector should be disposed of properly.
Technological advances have been good for the lighting industry. Incandescent and halogen bulbs produce as much or more heat than they produced light. LED light bulbs produce more light and less heat. Systematically replace old lighting technology with new.
Check the Fire Extinguishers
Various areas of your home should have a fire extinguisher nearby; often this is required by building code. If you only think about them when needed. Make sure you know their location, check their charge, and replace them when necessary.
Take a Look at Your Water Heater
How old is your water heater? Read an available manual concerning maintenance. Chemicals in public water systems can corrode the tank; inspect for small leaks that might develop. When water heaters fail, it is as shocking as a cold shower. Don’t get caught unaware.
Make sure the Grill is Ready
Don’t wait until the “day of” to clean the grill. Scour off the leavings of meals fondly remember before you cook the next backyard feast.
Give the Yard Some TLC
Your yard should give your home good curb appeal and welcome family and guests.
