Contact your HVAC company for a check up. Most visits include routine maintenance such as cleaning outdoor and indoor units. Also, a technician will check to make sure the drain is clear of any potential clogs. Also, this is a good time to change the filter. It is highly recommended to change the air filter at least once a month.
Roof and Gutters:
While the weather is nice outside, consider having the roof and gutters cleaned. While your thinking about the roof, this is a great time to have it inspected to discover any damage and get repairs made especially if you have had a lot of bad weather over the winter and spring.
Check around the outside of the home for any damage. Have any wood structures inspected and repaired for deterioration, rot or loose nails.
Look for Pests:
Walk the perimeter to inspect for signs of insects and pests and contact a contractor to repair accordingly.
While walking the perimeter, check any asphalt or concrete surfaces for wear and tear. Promptly sealing and repairing is essential to avoiding more costly repairs down the road.
