While it’s not officially summer yet, homeowners are already scrambling to keep up with their seasonal maintenance checklist. Temperatures are rising, sunshine is plentiful, and it can be difficult to prioritize what needs to be done around the house. Here are four important home fixes you should consider tackling before the days get too hot.
Upgrade your insulation. Make sure your house is properly insulated to keep your family cool in the summer and warm in the winter. If you haven’t had your insulation inspected in a while, ask a professional to take a look and make sure you’re optimizing your home’s core temperature from season to season.
Check your home for leaks. Heavy spring showers or summer thunderstorms may have sprung a few leaks in your home. Before summer turns into fall, get your roof, siding, and foundation checked for any possible damage. Carefully inspect your roof flashing and check the attic and basement for signs of moisture. Be sure to get your gutters cleaned to ensure proper water flow during heavy rains.
Upgrade your windows. Energy-efficient double-pane windows reduce your energy consumption and utility costs, keep the heat out and the cool air in, reduce noise infiltration, and filter out UV rays.
Get your HVAC serviced. Check both your furnace and AC filter to see if they need to be repaired or replaced. These filters are designed to catch dust and clean the air before it’s pushed into your home, so replacing them regularly can minimize allergens and create cleaner, healthier air.
Making these upgrades can also add to the value of your home. For more information, contact the knowledgeable Realtors at Hilton Head Island Real Estate Brokers.
