Prepping Your Home For An Awesome Summer
For many homeowners, summer means gardening, grilling, and spending more time outdoors. Now is the time to get your home ready for warm weather with these tips.
Freshen your airflow
Replace your air conditioner filters or have a professional inspect your unit to ensure it’s in good working condition. If you rely on fans, check that they’re properly running to enjoy a cool summer.
Patch your lawn
It’s the perfect time to trim your shrubs and tree as well as plant new grass and flowers to enhance curb appeal. If your lawn equipment sat through the winter, check that it still runs properly.
Fix the sprinkler
Your lawn will need to be watered during summer. Now is the best time to test your hoses and underground pipes.
Clear the gutters
Inspect your gutters and downspouts for breaks or low spots and remove leaves and debris as well.
Change your old thermostat to a programmable one
If you don’t have a programmable or smart thermostat, consider getting one to save on energy bills.
Clean the deck
Freshen your deck area and spruce up your outdoor furniture. Make sure your umbrella sits securely in the base and brighten the space with flowering planters or pillows.
Since you’re having a lot of things cleaned, it’s also a chance to organize. Discard any unneeded things and neatly arrange all items where they belong.
Inspect the grill
If you enjoy inviting guests for a grilling session during the summer, clean and test your grill as well as all your outdoor cooking equipment so they are ready for the season.
