As the temperatures start to rise, it is critical to prepare your home for the summer months. Home AC maintenance is all about fixing minor problems and preventing major problems later down the line. Before you start focusing on servicing your gas grills and reinforcing your patio, focus on the core systems in your home and how they will be affected by rising temperatures. Here are some valuable summer home maintenance tips from the maintenance experts at Service One Air Conditioning that you should reference when you start inspecting and servicing systems around your home.
Check All of Your Hoses
After a dramatic shift in temperatures from cool to hot, it is important to check all of your hoses to your appliances. The hoses to your washing machine, refrigerator and dishwasher can easily crack and deteriorate, leading to unnecessary leaks and possible flooding. You should also invest in leak detection services from a professional Longwood plumber to ensure all of your plumbing pipes are free of cracks after the long winter. Leak detection can save you a fortune if you can prevent a major burst.
Service Your AC
One of your most prized systems in your home during the summer will undeniably be your AC. Before you turn your AC for the first time, you should have the system cleaned and serviced. The evaporator coils and condenser can easily get dirty. This dirt and dust will make the motor of your system work harder to cool air. AC maintenance can extend the life of your unit, keep your home cooler and reduce your cooling costs during the summer season all at the same time.
Clean Your Gutters
Over the winter and the fall, debris accumulates in your gutters. While cleaning gutters is important in Spring, if wet leaves and debris is clogging your gutters you need to have it cleaned immediately. Failing to clear the debris can lead to a reduction in water flow and roofing leaks.
