Spring Home Maintenance: What to Check Off Your List Before Summer

Spring Home Maintenance

As spring rolls around, you’re probably itching to get back outside and enjoy the nice weather. But there are still some things to do around the house to set yourself up for a successful spring and summer season.

Check out the tips below to ensure your home is ready for summer!

Fix Insulation

As you're doing your annual spring cleaning, add “fix insulation” to your list. This doesn’t necessarily mean ripping open the walls but rather sealing any cracks or openings around your home.

Cracks often form around your doors and windows. These cracks aren’t just aesthetically problematic, they can also let air seep out of your home. And when you’re paying to cool the air only for it to leave quickly, you’re spending more money on your air conditioning than necessary.

Take some caulking and seal any visible cracks around your windows and doors. You can also add weatherstripping to insulate your windows and doors better.

AC Tune-Up

Every spring, you should have your air conditioning system checked and tuned by a professional. Annual maintenance is crucial to ensure your AC is ready to operate consistently over the summer season.

Maintenance may include changing filters, checking efficiency, making minor repairs, and testing airflow. It’s also an opportunity for a professional to spot any needed repairs before they get worse and derail your whole system. With a tune-up, you’ll avoid sudden breakdowns when the summer heat is at its worst.

Spring Cleaning

As you perform spring-cleaning duties, make sure to clean in a way that will help your home’s airflow. Move furniture away from air vents and keep heat-producing appliances and devices away from your thermostat.

Also, make sure to dust frequently to help improve your indoor air quality.
