Tips to Prepare Your Home for Spring

Apr 30, 2021 | HVAC

The fresh air and sunny skies have gotten lots of Ohio homeowners excited about the joys of springtime! On the other hand, as a homeowner, there are just a few things that need to be remembered when preparing your home for spring and summer. Which is why we at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating brought together just a couple tips to keep in mind when completing your seasonal spring cleaning and maintenance! 

Have Gutters Cleaned

When it comes to gutter maintenance, the less debris left behind in your gutters from fall and winter, the better. While gutter cleaning isn’t the cleanest nor the most fun job on the list, it’s definitely essential to the value of your home. Water runoff caused by overflowing gutters can cause countless problems with your siding and foundation. If you aren’t experienced working from heights, however, it’s best to hire a professional.

Have Roof Checked 

Heavy snowfall is always worrisome for homeowners because of the effects it can have on your roofing. Additionally, any roof damage will make your HVAC system work harder. So make sure to have someone do a quick check-up on the condition of your roof. Or, if you suspect any problems off the bat, be sure to call a professional to do an inspection. 

Don’t forget A/C maintenance

Before turning on your air conditioner this summer, make sure to clear any debris, shrubs, or furniture away from your outdoor AC unit. This will ensure that it doesn’t overheat and create problems throughout the HVAC system. For optimal use of your unit and to save you on energy costs and ensure the unit runs all summer, now is the time to schedule your A/C tune up. Seasonal maintenance is an investment that always pays off.

Check Up on Smoke Detectors 

Smoke detectors are a lifesaver (literally), and it’s important to make sure they are functioning properly. This can be done any time of the year, but if you haven’t checked it off the list in the past 12 months, then be sure to do it this spring.
