Spring is the time of year when most of the world wiggles its way out of the warm buddle it’s been wrapped inside for the cold winter months. The sun begins to shine a bit more, the air is fresher, and flowers begin to bloom. Spring is also the perfect time to get things in your life and around the house in great working order for the upcoming year.
Spring home maintenance has become a routine for most families. Prepping the lawnmower for the yard work ahead, pulling out the garden hose for planting, and getting your house in great working order begins by creating yourself a schedule. In this article, we’ll discuss spring home maintenance and help you decide when to schedule all the things you need to have done.
An HVAC checkup should be at the top of your list.
While you’re busy rushing through the house, spring cleaning, and packing away the winter wardrobe, your HVAC system is waiting for its yearly checkup. Springtime is the perfect setting for this routine maintenance. Calling your HVAC technician to stop by for an inspection before you decide to turn on the air conditioner is the best time.
Having your heating and cooling system inspected yearly helps avoid costly repairs and untimely maintenance. By staying on top of regular maintenance with both your furnace and air conditioner, you can easily switch your systems on and enjoy the benefits anytime you choose. By wisely scheduling spring HVAC maintenance, you’ll feel better about your home’s system when the heat rises, and you’re eyeing the thermostat.
Cleaning and organizing on a schedule are less stressful.
Spring is when most homeowners decide to go through their homes and clean from top to bottom. Dusting, reorganizing, and decluttering are all a part of this chore but shouldn’t be tackled all at once. Before you jump into a huge spring cleaning, take the time to make yourself a schedule. This will help avoid unwanted stress as your home gets the touch-ups it needs.
A cleaning schedule can be easy to create. Write down all the tasks you hope to accomplish. Once you’ve compiled your list, work on a time frame. Take each job in the order it should be done and designate a day and time to work on it. By sticking to your schedule, you’ll easily clean out those closets and organize that attic while using less energy to do so.
Spring maintenance doesn’t stop at home.
If you work outside the home, you know the importance of keeping your office space clean and well-maintained. When the spring maintenance bug bites you, don’t hesitate to let your urge to get things in order spill over into your work life. Organize that desk, clean out that utility closet, and put your need to have a more organized year to good use.
Perhaps you’ve noticed boiler system issues at work or other problems that need to be fixed. If so, take the time to reach out to an HVAC technician specializing in boilers for office buildings. Many professionals specialize in work at commercial buildings and will be ideal for you to work with. If you’re unsure who to reach out to, speak with the HVAC contractor you use at home for suggestions.
If you’re waiting for spring to roll around in hopes of getting a jump start on home maintenance and cleaning, get your ideas ready. Getting that schedule prepared will help you decide what to tackle each job and allow you to make appointments with professionals now. Just remember, stay on track, take breaks, and enjoy the joys of spring.
