Springtime Home Maintenance Musts

Spring is a great time to catch up on home maintenance and seasonal household tasks. The weather is right for landscaping, painting, and other outdoor projects, so your Florida to-do list should address exterior upkeep. As the seasons change, Sarasota, Florida, homeowners have plenty of responsibilities to attend to indoors. In addition to these DIY improvements, springtime home maintenance should include a routine service call for your heat pump or furnace, and air conditioner.

Service Heating and Cooling Components

Your heat pump or furnace has done its job fending off winter chills. Spring is the best time to service your heater and make sure your air conditioner is in top shape.

Our experienced Climatic technicians are trained to identify common HVAC problems and conduct multi-point performance evaluations. As part of your spring service call, we’ll clean coils, lubricate components, replace filters, and provide recommendations to improve your year-round comfort.

Clean and Refresh Yard Machines

Routine maintenance keeps your power equipment functioning as it should. Your mower, grass trimmer, power washer, and other machines benefit from a spring checkup. Start by cleaning your power equipment and removing built-up grass and other debris from the machines.

Complete the process by repairing minor damage and ensuring each piece of equipment has fresh oil, air filters, spark plugs, and the appropriate heavy-duty extension cords. Local repair shops often promote spring tuneup specials to help with these tasks.

Inspect Gutters, Downspouts, and Roof Shingles

Over time, wind, rain, and other natural forces degrade shingles, siding, gutters, and trim. Evaluating these essential features and making needed repairs can help head off further damage. Gutters should be free of debris and properly pitched to facilitate the flow of water. Downspouts should extend away from your home to prevent water pooling, which can damage your home’s foundation.

Without leaving the ground, inspect your roof for torn, broken, and missing shingles. If these signs are present, call a contractor with the experience and equipment to safely evaluate your roof from above.
