Keep clean air circulating through your house when it heats up this year. Dirty air filters can make your AC unit less efficient and add extra dollars to your electric bill. It’s recommended that you replace your filter once every 30 days to keep your AC running at maximum efficiency.

2. Lawn & Yard Maintenance

Summer weather can be hard on your lawn. Simple things like letting your grass grow a little longer and limiting foot traffic can help encourage growth that tolerates the heat. It’s also a good idea to sharpen the blades on your mower before taking it to the turf. Sharp blades keep your lawn trims neat and help grass repair itself properly.

3. Check your appliances
