Spring is here! I love Spring as the trees start to bud and the grass is turning green again. Everything is coming to life! The March Home Maintenance Checklist will get your home ready for the change in seasons.
It’s time to move outdoors to enjoy the spring weather!
March Home Maintenance Checklist
Let’s get started on this month’s checklist…
- Check Furnace Filters / Change If Needed
- Test Carbon Monoxide / Smoke Detectors
- Clean Range Hood & Filter
- Clean Garbage Disposal
- Inspect Roofing for Damage
- Service A/C Unit
- Flush Hot Water Heater
- Treat Septic Tank
- Spring Deep Clean Living Area
As the seasons change, it’s the perfect time to have your HVAC provider service the air conditioning unit. No one wants to have their air conditioner stop working in the heat of summer! A regular service call as seasons change will keep your unit running as efficiently as possible. While the provider is there, ask them to change out the furnace filter also.
Flushing the hot water heater helps to drain the mineral sediments that can cause it to run less efficiently. Not sure how to do this? Here are some instructions to follow to keep your hot water heater performing its best. Click here.
Don’t forget to test the carbon monoxide / smoke detectors this month. Replace the batteries to ensure they are in good working order. An ounce of prevention can keep your family safe in the event there is an unfortunate emergency.
