You are already probably swamped with planning for holiday parties and vacations, but don’t forget to take a second and plan for next year’s home maintenance, too.
Try to come up with a checklist. If you have some home improvement projects lined up as well, make sure to coordinate and schedule these jobs in a way that would let you save time and money.
Here are some home maintenance tasks you shouldn’t miss on doing in 2020.
Change Your HVAC Filter
HVAC filters are commonly replaced every one to three months. So, at the start of the year, you might want to check your filters and see if they already need replacement.
Check for Leaks
Water leaks can easily go undetected. Before you know it, you’re already dealing with extensive and costly damage. Some of the areas you should specifically look into are your toilets, shower and bathtub. Also, check your faucets for leaking or dripping.
Ensure Windows and Doors Are Properly Sealed
Cracks around windows and doors can affect the energy efficiency of your home. Since these typically cause heat and air to escape your home, your HVAC systems tend to work harder to ensure a comfortable indoor temperature. So, fix those cracks as soon as you spot them, and add weatherstripping as needed.
Powerwash Your Home’s Exterior
This is usually best done in the summer or after you’ve finished up spring cleaning. Of course, your home’s exterior also requires care and attention. Powerwash and deep clean the exterior, including your siding, deck and driveway. It’s a simple trick to keep your home looking good as new.
Fix Up Your Deck
Ready your deck for outdoor parties in the summer. Pressure wash it to remove dirt and debris, and reseal to avoid water damage. Look out for protruding nails and loose boards, and repair them immediately.
