Spring is just about over, and summer begins on June 21st! If you're like most people, you spent much of the spring cleaning up and completing home maintenance tasks to ready your house for the warmer season. But chances are, you forgot a few things. Here are five often-forgotten home maintenance tasks to squeeze in before spring is over. 1. Vacuum your vents Your heating vents tend to get dusty and dirty in the spring, since they often sit unused during this season.
- For the most part, homes are built with a garage of some sort, and most of the time, the garage will be connected to the house. However, if you move into a property and build a garage after the fact, you will be left getting electrical power to this new property structure. Since relying on an extension cord would be illogical, you'll no doubt be checking out what is involved to run a new line of electricity to a new structure.
- For the most part, your home's HVAC system does a good job of keeping your home comfortable. You have it regularly maintained, you don't see major fluctuations in energy bills, and things seem to be working fine. But there could still be room for improvement. With modern smart home improvements, your HVAC system could be even more intelligent than what it is now. In fact, there are all kinds of simple changes you can make to the system that will provide you with more efficient heating and cooling.
- Old homes have a lot of charm, which is why they tend to attract restorationists and conservationists alike. However, one common problem many homeowners run into with older houses is how to upgrade the homes' ancient heating systems that can no longer keep up with modern heating needs. Here are two options for tackling this issue while still ensuring your home retains its appeal. Radiant Heating If your vintage home already uses a radiator system to heat spaces, one option is to upgrade it to in-floor or in-wall radiant heating.
- Sometimes heating up your home can include a little beauty. If you want to have a beautiful center in your home, you can select an electric fireplace to help with your winter heating needs. Installing the fireplace will take proper placement and some mounting. If you want to make sure that your electric fireplace is installed in the right space and will help with heating your home, you should get an HVAC technician, like those at Bryant Air Conditioning, Heating, Electrical & Plumbing, to install and inspect the fireplace.
