Give Your Home a Quick Check-Up This New Year

Thursday, January 19th, 2012

Helping you keep your home in the best condition possible is very important to us.

Taking the time to check and fix any items that need repair now, could save you headaches and money in the future – so here are some tips on what to check your home for:

· Test your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors and check that they have batteries

· Check your heat exchanger in your furnace for leaks (in the winter months)

· Check and drain your hot water heater once a year

· Make sure your exterior weather stripping on windows and doors are correct to stop air leakage

· Check and maintain your furnace (replacing filters will improve the air quality inside of your house and cleaning the humidifier makes it run more efficient)

· Check out the health of your home by looking at your attic insulation and ventilation

· Check the condition of your windows – maybe it’s time to get a price on higher efficient clad windows, then you will never have to paint again and will save on heating & cooling costs at the same time

· Check the condition of your exterior siding – maybe it’s time for a new exterior paint job or even better, a new maintenance free exterior

We will share another list with you as we get closer to spring too, which will include additional outside items that need to be checked.

As always, if you have any questions or need our help with a project please give us a call.
