Preparing Your Home for Spring

When you hear spring, you know it’s time to clean not only the inside of your home, but the outside and everything in between. The temperature and weather changes can impact the efficiency of your home. While you’re enjoying the April showers and May flowers, there are a few ways you can prepare your home for the adjustments that come with the season.

Air Circulation

The bright blooms and freshness of the air is something we all wish we could welcome inside our homes. Hiring a technician to inspect your HVAC system can help with just that, improving your indoor air quality.

With so many contaminants in the air, a routine yearly inspection of cleaning, maintenance, and filter replacement is important to keep your air cleaner and healthier in your home.

Maintenance can include replacing the filters and keeping the parts clean and free of debris. Taking this step to prepare will help prevent any air conditioning issues as summer approaches.

Insulation Inspection and Repairs

With spring showers and sun approaching, inspecting the insulation of your attic, roof, and windows can help you be ready for the weather changes.

Some days may be nice enough to let the crisp spring air come through an open window or two, but if you find any gaps, cracks or holes, it may call for some unwanted guests. You may look forward to bringing flowers inside to spruce up the brightness of your home, but, be careful of the mites that may come with them.

Decluttering and Cleaning

Another way to prep your home is one we have all heard before, is decluttering and cleaning. Overused items or ones that have sat around and collected dust in the winter are now ready to be discarded or cleaned.

Regardless of the size of the home, keeping the inside and outside of the house clean from dust can help with allergy symptoms that tend to reappear every spring.
