Your time is valuable and if you’ve opted to manage your property on your own, these time saving tips can make the most of your money.  Preventative maintenance helps to avoid costly emergency repair bills, unnecessary wear and tear on your property, and resident dissatisfaction

Check for peeling paint. Inspect exterior walls to see if any paint is peeling or blistering on the house or building. Peeling paint may be a sign that the existing paint film is failing and not protecting the building siding. If the problem is not fixed, the siding could deteriorate, leading to expensive future repairs.

Switch out HVAC filterBe sure to switch out your filter every 30-60 days. This will allow the system to function properly, run more efficiently and save you money on heating bills.

Flush the water heaterThis is a cheap and easy procedure that we recommend you do every 2 years. It only costs about $30, so it’s worth it. Flushing the system helps to control the buildup of mineral deposits, resulting in a more efficient heater.

Service oil or gas heater. Cleaning your furnace is a service that varies upon your system, but one that is an absolute necessity.

Cover or remove window unit air conditioners. Vacuum internal parts of air conditioners. Remove units from windows or wrap the outside box with a tarp or plastic air conditioner cover.

Inspect the roof. A roof inspection is key we usually suggest twice a year fall and spring. Leaking or collapsing ceilings are a nightmare to deal with for your family and wallet.

Trim the trees and landscape. Tree trimmings and landscaping should be done to avoid any fall off or to help keep the attractiveness of your property at an all time high.  If you decide to hire a landscape company, get a few quotes just to see the difference.

Inspect the chimneyAlways have your chimney inspected for any repairs that need to be done before there is any further damage caused by any storms.  Annually cleaning is a must, build up can lead to serious hazards.

Clean the gutters. A simple gutter cleaning once a year will help you avoid any further damage that may be done to your property caused by buildup. Depending on how many levels there are to your home, this is a safe and easy procedure to make sure that everything is cleaned out.

Replace an old water heater. An old water heater should receive some special attention. Make the necessary steps and schedule an appointment to replace or fix up that old water heater
