After a long, hard winter, we’re finally seeing the sunlight at the end of the tunnel! We know you’re ready to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, but are you sure that your house is ready to make the transition from cold temperatures to warm?
We want to make it easy for you to be sure that you’re taking the best care of your home that you possibly can, so we made this checklist of things that you should do before we’re in full springtime.
Check the Roof
Your roof has done a lot of work for you this winter—especially if you were one of the millions of Americans who experienced severe snowstorms early this year. Make sure that it didn’t lose any shingles along the way. You should also look out for unevenness among shingles, as that can be pointing to nail-pops and potential leak opportunities.
Check Your Gutters
It won’t be long before we’re gearing up for April showers! Be sure that your gutters are unclogged, cleared of leaves and debris, and are in good working order. Pro Tip: Look for water drips, especially around gutter downspouts, on your exterior walls. These marks point to a leaky gutter.
Windows and Doors
If you took our advice before winter and made sure to seal your openings, now is a good time to check those places to be sure that your sealing stayed in tact. If not, take the opportunity to seal them now, before your home is working to keep cool air in and warm, summer air out.
It’s time to clear out the leaves and debris from your HVAC unit and get it ready for a hot summer! This is also the perfect time to schedule a routine maintenance check from your expert service provider. They will be able to spot signs of trouble after a long winter, and make repairs before hot spring and summer weather sets in.
If you have a maintenance plan with BNG Heating and Cooling, you’re already on our list of homes to check in on before spring. If not, you can schedule a consultation by calling one of our locations or by going online to schedule your consultation today.
