Want to know how you can avoid the hassle? Take notes on 10 easy fixes you can implement to save you time, and more importantly money!

  • Be sure to change your AC filters every 2 – 3 weeks during the summer months. For the remainder of the seasons, changing every 1-2 months will do.
  • Avoid using pleated filters as they make it difficult to pull air into the system.
  • Slider doors in the homes can be lubed with Lithium or even Teflon lube so they maintain flexibility.
  • Do your best to inspect all smoke detector batteries yearly.
  • All range hood filters should be cleaned monthly.
  • Although a simple task, checking the dryer vent for lint build-up prevents blocked air flow.
  • Make a point to check trees and shrubs to ensure they are not touching the home or other nearby structures.
  • The water build-up from shower heads can be removed by using CLR (Calcium, Lime, and Rust remover)
  • Each quarter, be sure to tighten all doorknobs and handles in the home.
  • Always double check GFCI’s because they may be the culprit of power outages.
