Maintenance Tips

Good maintenance practices will save you money

Home Repairs

Any water leak- evidenced by a stained ceiling, rocky toilet, or a musty  smell – can cause severe damage such as dry rot, mold or infestation by  termites. Fix water leaks immediately. For instance, replacing your roof  may cost a lot, but it’s much cheaper than replacing the underlying roof  structure if the problem is ignored

Check the Chimney

To combat a smoky chimney, have the chimney swept annually. Burn  small, hot fires instead of big, smoky ones, and never burn trash,  cardboard or gift wrapping in the fireplace.

Air Conditioning Filter

Make sure your air conditioning filters are clean and in good repair. Dirty  or missing filters can lead to fire or an air conditioner breakdown. With a  $2 filter, you can preserve a $6,000 air conditioning system.

Duct Cleaning

Heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems can collect a variety of  contaminants that have the potential to affect health such as molds,  fungi, bacteria and small particles of dust. Duct cleaning entails cleaning  the various heating and cooling system components of forced air  systems, including the supply and return air ducts and registers, grills  and diffusers.
