Easy Home Maintenance

As we’ve talked about before, repairing a home can cost A LOT of money (and time!)…

often it can be upwards of tens of thousands of dollars.

BUT…

There are some really things you can do to keep appliances and HVAC systems in your home up to snuff so that there aren’t big costly repairs to be made (at least not often).

Here’s what we recommend –

Flush Water Heater — Flush the water heater once a year to protect the appliance from sediment and hard water deposits.

Action Item: Flush water heater annually.

Fix Small Leaks — Have a small water leak? Fix it right away before it causes more damage.

Action Item: Repair leaks right away!

Cool The Attic —

Does the attic get very hot in the summer? That might not seem like a big deal, but it can reduce shingle lifespan and even cause rafters to bow.

Action Item: Install vents to cool it down.

Clean Gutters — Clean those gutters every year in autumn to avoid broken gutters and water overfill that can drip and cause water damage.

Action Item: Clean gutter and check for leaks annually, in fall. Consider adding gutter guards if you live around a lot of trees.

Install a Bathroom Fan — Don’t have a bathroom fan? Or don’t have a very good one? Install a really effective bathroom fan to avoid mold and mildew build up.

Action item: Hire a handyman to install a bathroom fan and confirm it’s properly vented to the exterior – NOT the attic.  

Consider finding an annual household maintenance list online and building it into your fall and spring calendars. We love this one over at Better Homes and Gardens. After all, and ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
