Home Maintenance Tips for May

Home Maintenance Reminders for May

 

  • May is the perfect time to get your HVAC system serviced. After all this might be the only month it has off between heating and cooling. Also be sure to change your filter monthly.  If you need a good HVAC tech give us a call.
  • Clear out your dryer vent. Clogged dryer vents pose an oft overlooked fire hazard, and they also decrease drying times. You can probably do this yourself with a vacuum. You’ll be amazed at the difference it can make.
  •  Flush your water heater. Mineral build up can lower capacity and eventually damage your tank. You should be doing this once a year. If you neglect this job too long the sediment can harden.

 

*While you’re at it, be sure you have carbon monoxide detectors plugged in near any gas appliances including water heaters, furnaces, dryers and fireplaces.
