It’s been a long, cold winter that’s been hard on everyone, but spring has finally sprung up here in New York and Connecticut. We’re all looking forward to the greenery and warmer weather that’s right around the corner. As a homeowner, now is the time to prepare your home for the warm seasons. You may be wondering what you need to do to get your home ready for spring. Keep reading because we’re bringing you a spring homeowner’s checklist to keep your home comfortable and in tip-top shape for the changing weather.
1. Get Your Annual A/C and Heating Tune-Up
Getting yearly maintenance on your air conditioner and heating system comes with plenty of benefits. When you get your annual tune-ups, you save on energy costs all season long. You’ll have the advantages of maximum energy efficiency, improved indoor air quality, and a reduced risk of mid-season breakdowns.
2. Get Your Pool Ready for the Summer Months
There’s nothing better than having warm enough weather to take a dip in your swimming pool. Here at Marshall Oil, we’re prepared to help you take care of all aspects of your home comfort, and that includes getting your swimming pool ready for the hot seasons of the year. When it’s time to fill your swimming pool, contact us!
3. Check Windows and Doors for Drafts
If you’re going to be running your A/C to keep your home cool, make sure you check all your doors and windows for air leaks. You want to prevent cold air from escaping and warm air from leaking in. Any drafts you feel, make sure you seal them with caulk or weather stripping.
4. Replace Your Air Filters
This is an easy HVAC hack to save money all season long and benefit from improved air quality. Over time, your air filters accumulate dirt and debris, so changing them every season is a good idea. All that dirt makes your air conditioner work harder. If you don’t know how to change your air filter, we can help with that.
Hopefully, this maintenance checklist helps you get your home ready for spring. When you’re ready for your heating tune-up or to fill your swimming pool, be sure to contact us. As always, your home comfort is our priority.
