What Should Be in Your Summer Home Maintenance Checklist?

Summer is the best season to give your home an in-depth maintenance and cleaning program before the weather starts cooling down again. But what exactly should be in your summer home maintenance checklist? Handyman Connection of Chicago Central discusses this.

Home Maintenance Checklist

Clean the AC and Heaters

Summer should be the season where you do in-depth inspections on your climate control. Inspect these, or better yet, have a professional team do an inspection for you to see if they need any maintenance work done. It’s better to have these things looked at when the weather is relatively mild; the last thing you want is for your heater to fail when you need it the most.

Check Your Windows

Your windows play a vital role in regulating the temperature of your home, and they need to be in good condition by summer before fall and winter arrive. If your windows are in disrepair, our team highly recommends you have us take a look at them. A window that’s in disrepair doesn’t just reduce comfort levels and increases energy costs; it’s a security risk, too.

Have A Roofer Inspect Your Roofing

The switch from mild weather to humid and hot this summer may aggravate the condition of your roofing; take note that it’s already experienced winter a few months before, so it’s probably in need of repair and maintenance.

Just like your home’s windows, the roof plays a role in regulating home temperature and comfort levels. While you can certainly do an inspection on your home, we suggest you have us do it for you. Problems with your roof are usually hidden and hard to spot, but with our experience, we can tell if your roofing is in need of a quick touch-up this summer.
