It’s the first day of summer! Is your home ready for the new season? By taking care of a few simple chores around the house, you can enjoy a comfortable summer season. Here are a few tips to help get your home summer-ready.
How to Prep Your Home for Summer:
- Change Your Air Filters – You should change your air filters at the start of the new season. This will ensure that your air conditioning system is working efficiently through the summer months. If your air filters are not changed, and are clogged with dirt and dust, it will be more difficult for cool, conditioned air to pass through your system.
- Check for Leaks – The start of a new season is the perfect time to check for leaks around the home. This is especially true for your outdoor faucet and hose bibs! You want to make sure that nothing cracked over the winter months.
- Close Your Windows – Although we might want to let in some fresh air, you should keep your windows closed during the summer months. This will help keep allergens out of your home and keep your air conditioning system from working overtime.
- Schedule a Tune-Up – Schedule an air conditioning tune-up at the start of the summer season. This will ensure that your system is in working order for the hot days ahead. During a tune-up, a technician will be able to identify any potential problems with your system, and help your A/C run more efficiently through the summer.
