- Start spring right by scheduling routine AC maintenance with ComfortAire. This service has tons of benefits, including energy savings and reducing the need for repairs in the future.
- Test your sump pump to make sure it can handle the spring showers. Pour a few gallons of water into your sump pit—if this doesn’t raise the float and activate the pump, call us for a professional repair.
- Spring is lawn prep time—sharpen your lawnmower blades, apply weed treatments, and put fertilizer down.
- Keep your indoor air pollutant-free with a home air purification system. These units are designed to capture and kill airborne contaminants like viruses and bacteria, protecting your health and safety.
- With more water used in the summer, your plumbing system will see more action. In case of clogs, skip the chemical drain cleaner and grab a drain snake instead.
- Dehumidifiers can be a great solution to high humidity levels in your house. Consider installing one for enhanced health and comfort.
- Perhaps a little-known piece of new homeowner advice: “flushable wipes” are not actually flushable. Stick with toilet paper to avoid clogging your toilet or sewer line.
- Your water heater needs some love too—annually draining and flushing your system can maximize its performance and lifespan.
- As new homeowners, you may not have had a chance to inspect the attic before you bought the house. Go up there now and see if it’s insulated—this simple step can save you as much as $600 in heating and cooling costs per year.
- What every homeowner should know is that the direction your ceiling fan rotates plays a big part in your comfort. In the wintertime, set the blades to move clockwise to push warmer air downward. It’s an easy way to stay comfortable without touching the thermostat.
- Schedule routine furnace or boiler maintenance with our experts to ensure your system won’t break down in the middle of winter.
- Prevent your pipes from freezing by turning off water to outside spigots and adding insulation on the inside.
