Please use caution if you do these yourself and don’t hesitate to call a professional if you need help. We can recommend some in your area, just let us know.
1. Check your Air Conditioning Unit– This is the MOST important item to check and give it a good tune-up. The tune up is used to inspect refrigerant levels, which is important for your AC to keep running cool and keep your summer electric bills low, as well as to ensure your fan is functioning well, your coils are thoroughly cleaned and there are no potential fire hazards with faulty wiring.
2. Roof Check-Inspecting your roof regularly for small problems is a great way to prevent large issues from water damage.
3. Window Check– Routinely monitor the sealants to keep the warm air out and the cool air in. Ensure that both inside and out are secured, and caulk any open areas in between. Also, check weather-stripping for any faults and replace it immediately if there is an issue.
4. Pool Maintenance-If your swimming months are long, be sure to keep a routine of cleaning it up, leveling the water, ensuring that your pumps are working and balancing your chemicals.
