Do you own a home in central Florida? Are you wondering whether your home is prepared to face another year? Did you know there are simple things you can do before you ring in 2016 to prepare your home for emergencies in the new year? It’s best to be safe than sorry, so follow our guide of four quick tips for maintaining your home in the new year:
Tip #1. Check Your Pipes and Catch Basins
There are few disasters worse than a flood — and in Florida, you likely will experience heavy rain and pooling water. Keep the water away from your home by installing catch basins and a pipe system. Keep those catch basins free of debris and leaves, and have the pipes checked out once a year to help ensure there are no cracks, or worse, to help ensure the pipes haven’t collapsed from mud overload.
Tip #2. Clean Your Exterior Compressor Unit
If you have an exterior compressor unit for your HVAC, clean the inside and outside using proper protocols. Also, make sure you sweep away any leaves or debris around the unit, as these can get caught in the fans. You want your compressor to be free to do its job and avoid AC repairs this year.
Tip #3. Change Your Air Filters
If you want clean air, you have to do your part. Change your air filters at least once per month — and maybe more depending on the amount of dust and moisture in your home. Our AC maintenance program can help if you’re busy schedule leaves you forgetful.
