Warmer days are finally here in Gwinnett! It’s best to make sure your rental home is ready for the upcoming fall season by ticking off these Summer maintenance tips!
Service Your AC
Summer heat means your AC is probably working overtime! Routine maintenance not only ensures your system is working properly but can also catch small problems before they spiral out of control. By changing your HVAC filters regularly, you can do your best at preventative measures. Keeping your AC at a consistent temperature prevents the system from working too hard on hot summer days.
Check Your Windows and Doors
Proper weatherproofing for your doors and windows is a key part of energy efficiency in your Gwinnett rental home. Without air-tight seals, cool air leaks out of the cracks and hot air and nasty pests can get in. Be sure to check your windows and doors for proper sealing and functionality. Check the weather-stripping for any gaps around your doors and make sure all windows are properly caulked and sealed. Perform a draft test around your windows and doors to ensure there is a proper seal.
Test the Smoke and CO Detectors
Whether or not you have ever used your smoke and CO detectors, it’s always a good idea to stay cautious and check them regularly. Test the batteries and replace them as needed. The last thing you want is a non-functional smoke detector in case of an emergency!
Have the Vents and Dryer Vents Cleaned
Vent cleaning is another preventative summer maintenance item to consider. All the dust and debris built up in your ducts can block airflow and cause your HVAC systems to malfunction. Not only that, but lint and debris built up in your dryer vent creates a big fire hazard. Be sure to have both cleaned and serviced this summer!
Performing regular maintenance around your Gwinnett County rental home is also a great way to ensure your home is running efficiently and smoothly. Mowing, weeding, and watering the lawn are also things to consider during these hot summer months. Scheduled upkeep on your rental home during season changes will ensure that things are getting done on a regular basis.
