Winter, especially the conditions we see in Connecticut, takes a toll on your home. Spring, as a result, isn’t solely a time of rebirth but further of revitalizing your property.
Exterior and interior inspections reveal at a cursory level what has to be done, be it repairing cracks or getting the lawn ready.
Yet, out of all possible home maintenance projects, be sure to check these signs:
Repairing the Exterior: Several factors come into play. With your windows, wash the glass, and then repair any exposed wood. The full exterior, as well, has attracted dirt and mold and likely developed stains during the winter, so pressure wash the siding, deck, sidewalk, driveway, and fence. Any deck wood, too, should be resealed to prevent attracting pests in spring.
Air Conditioning Unit: Modern homes often feature an exterior air conditioning unit. Once warmer weather rolls around, it’s recommended to have an HVAC technician service it. A cleaner unit has to work less, resulting in improved performance and lower cooling costs. After, be sure to schedule monthly filter checks on your own.
Even if you don’t have an exterior fixture, spring’s the time to reinstall the window unit. Aside from considering the optimal location, clean the air conditioner first.
After you’ve purchased a home, spring’s the prime opportunity for performing maintenance and getting your property ready for the seasons ahead. If you’re in Connecticut and considering a new home, learn more about By Carrier’s communities.
