Spring is a wonderful time of year in Columbia, Maryland. Flowers bloom, birds chirp, and it provides a way to get outdoors after the long winter. Spring cleaning, on the other hand, isn’t nearly as wonderful. However, it’s a necessity. While you’re getting the house spick and span, you should also do some home maintenance tasks to improve the value of your home and keep it looking great. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

Inspect and Seal Windows

If you haven’t inspected your doors or windows in some time, it’s a perfect time to do so. The wear and tear of weather over time can damage caulking and weather-stripping. This allows the warm air from spring and summer to leak into your home, or allow air-conditioned air to seep outdoors. If you notice any cracks, use caulk to repair and replace any torn weather-stripping. You should also do this around the exterior of the home.

Get an HVAC Tuneup

Another way to save money and provide ultra comfort to your home is by getting an HVAC tuneup. When you call us for service, we’ll come out, prepare your furnace for the dormant season, and get your air conditioner humming like new. Plus, we can provide advice and suggestions about the things we see during inspection and maintenance.

Check for Leaks

Spring is the perfect time to check various appliances and fixtures for leaks. Pipes under the kitchen sink and bathroom sink may become leaky or sweaty, and fixing them can prevent catastrophic situations. You should also check your water heater, washer, and dishwasher for any pools of water, as this could signal more extensive and expensive problems in the future.

Cleaning your home and taking care of essential maintenance during spring isn’t a glorious task, but it’s something requires due diligence on your part. If you can’t fix the problem on your own, call the pros at Griffith Energy Services at 888-474-3391 today.
