Keeping up with home maintenance can be overwhelming for today’s busy residents. There’s a lot to do, and it’s easy to overlook issues that aren’t readily visible. Don’t wait until you need a major repair in your Baltimore, Maryland, home. Stay on top of these important home maintenance tasks to keep everything functioning safely and efficiently.

Changing Your Air Filter

The air filter in your HVAC system is something you may take for granted. While a well-maintained filter can do a good job of pulling dust, dander, and other irritants from the air, a dirty filter will reduce your energy efficiency and home comfort. You should change your air filter at least once every three months. If you have children, elderly family members, or asthma and allergy sufferers in your home, you may want to increase your filter changes to once a month.

Replacing Weather Stripping

Installing weathering stripping around windows and doors isn’t a one-time job. Over the years, your weather stripping will become worn and damaged. You should inspect your weather stripping every few months for cracks, tears, and other problem signs. Replace the weather stripping as needed to form a secure seal around all the movable openings in your home.

Cleaning the Gutters

You can’t see your gutters from the ground, so it’s easy to forget about the mess inside. In Maryland’s cold winters, a clogged gutter can result in a hazardous ice dam that will pull the gutter off the roof. In warmer weather, standing water in the gutter will encourage the growth of mold and mildew. Get a ladder, bucket, and trowel and clean out your gutters at least twice a year.

While many home maintenance tasks are DIY jobs, there are also several areas you should have addressed by a professional. Schedule an HVAC tuneup annually to keep your furnace and air conditioner in top condition. At Griffith Energy Services, we have the experience and knowledge you need to keep your Baltimore home in top shape. Contact us at 888-474-3391.
