February Home Maintenance Tips

Regular home maintenance is essential for preserving the integrity and value of your property. Here are four key tips to keep your home in top condition.

  1. Change HVAC and furnace filters every 3 months. Changing HVAC and furnace filters is crucial for maintaining good indoor air quality and ensuring the efficient operation of your heating and cooling systems. Clogged filters can restrict airflow, leading to increased energy consumption and potential system malfunctions.
  2. Check for pests, especially around the foundation or any wood near ground level.  This is essential for preventing infestations that can cause significant damage to your home’s structure. Regular inspections allow for early detection and prompt treatment, minimizing the risk of extensive repairs or infestation spread.
  3. Check for water damage around windows, pipes and foundation. Regularly checks is vital for identifying and addressing potential leaks or moisture issues promptly. Water damage can weaken structural components and promote mold growth, leading to costly repairs and health concerns if left unchecked.
  4. Landscaping clean up: Trimming shrubs, removing dead branches, and addressing weeds, not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your property but also reduces fire hazards and minimizes the risk of falling branches or trees. Regular maintenance ensures a tidy and safe outdoor environment for your home.
