Your Winter Home Checklist
Posted on January 15th, 2019 by Matthew
When a new year hits, so does change. It’s the time to make it the best year yet — and we think you should start with your home! After all, it’s the place you spend the majority of your time in, so why not give it the attention it deserves? To make sure your house is in tip-top shape this winter, you’ll want to read the following:
Avoid Winter Allergies
To start the year off right, you’ll want to ensure that your home is as allergen-free as it can be. After all, now is the time when you’ll be in it the most. Remember to clean and change your filters, schedule your routine tune-up, and clean your home regularly to keep allergens to a minimum.
Check Your Plumbing
Don’t let a little plumbing issue lead you to a major plumbing disaster. Now is the time to fix that dripping faucet or constantly clogged toilet you’ve been ignoring.
Combat Dry Air
Dry air can lead to a ton of winter woes. Though you might rarely think about your humidity level in the winter, it’s vital to ensure you have the right balance of moisture in the area, especially with the help of a humidifier.
Take Care of Your Drains
If you’ve been treating your garbage disposal like a trash can, make 2019 the year you stop doing that. Believe it or not, there is a list of things that should never enter your disposal and can shorten its lifespan — which will lead to a ton of unnecessary repairs.
Consider Some Upgrades
Is your HVAC system continually needing to be serviced? Have you been staring at that old dingy bathroom tile for years now? Well, now is the perfect time for some change! An HVAC system has a lifespan, and when it hits past its prime — it can be wasting energy and increase your energy bill.
A newer system will save you energy in the long run, while evenly heating your home. If you are in need of a bathroom remodel — why wait? Not only will it make it more appealing to guests, but it can also increase your home value, too.
