home maintenance is a vaccination
Anytime you get your yearly Flu shot, you are in essence getting a little bit of the Flu in order to
keep from getting a lot of Flu down the road. Home maintenance is a vaccination for your home in
which you invest a little money now to avoid spending a great deal later. Some items in your
home require annual maintenance, and to keep your home from needing to have some
considerable care, you ought to make certain these types of winter maintenance items are
reviewed before winter hits.
Change Your Furnace Filter-- In case your heating unit has a filter, it will need to be changed
once a year at minimum. When these filters get dirty, your heater uses more energy to put out the
same volume of heat, which not only sets you back more but it in addition shortens the life of your
unit. Filters are not expensive, yet they allow a very costly machine to endure.
Winterize Sprinklers/Hoses/Faucets-- Winterization is simply speaking the removal of water to
ensure that it won't freeze and crack pipes. In most areas of the country, winterizing sprinklers
costs no more than $75, on the other hand it may be thousands for a brand-new system. You in
addition need to roll up and drain any type of water hoses and also shut off the water for outdoor
Clean & Inspect Chimney-- Chimneys accumulate creosote, which is incredibly flammable and
can bring on roaring chimney fires if not cleaned routinely. A chimney cleaning will protect you
from this. Get an inspection (these frequently come free with a cleaning) while your chimney
sweep is there and determine if any other issues are lurking in your chimney.
Roof Problems-- If snow melts too quickly from your roof, you may be in danger of ice dams. Ice
dams can not only take down your gutters, but also part of your roof. Poor attic insulation is more
than likely to blame. Heat rises, and improper attic insulation will let it rise into your attic and heat
your roof. Adding insulation is an extremely budget-friendly project. It does not have to be
completed each year, but a minimum of every six in order to keep warm.
The Big Concept
Prevention does cost money, but it costs way less than the cure. The amount of money you
should invest on winter maintenance to protect your house from considerable illness is
considerably minor compared with the cost of having to replace something before it is ready to go.
