Spring is here; you know what that means—spring cleaning! At Chesmar Homes, we love spring cleaning because it’s a chance to shake off the gloom of winter, and it helps keep your home healthy. There are a few important tasks every homeowner should tackle throughout the year, but let’s keep it easy for now and focus on what you can do for spring.
Spring Maintenance Checklist
You’ve finally found the home of your dreams with Chesmar; let us help you keep it dreamy with these helpful spring maintenance tips:
Replace HVAC Filters
Spring is one of the most important times to change your HVAC filter as you make the switch from heating to cooling.
However, it is recommended that homeowners replace their HVAC filters every three months or every 90 days. Filters might need to be replaced more frequently depending on your living situation—for example, if you have pets, you might want to change the HVAC filter more often.
Air Conditioning Tune-Up
You know how hot it can get here in Texas; make sure you can rely on your AC this summer by scheduling an air conditioning tune-up. Yearly AC tune-ups also help improve the lifespan of your unit, so you don’t have to replace the system sooner than you need to.
Spring is the perfect time to focus on any home repairs that you need to make. This can include anything from a drafty window to a leaky roof and everything in between. No matter what it is, making the repair as soon as possible is important so that the issue doesn’t progress, leaving you with a bigger problem and a bigger repair bill!
Test Smoke Detectors
Having smoke detectors is an essential part of any home. Accidents happen—protect your family and your home by performing a quick smoke detector test and replacing batteries when needed.
