Do these tasks monthly, and you’ll save a bundle in emergency service calls and aggravation.
Inspect the attic for leaks during a rain storm
“Go into your attic to spot any leaks during a rain storm,” says John Bodrozic, co-founder of US-based HomeZada.
“Roof leaks can go unrepaired for a long time creating damage to insulation and can be a source of mould growth, which is harmful to your health.”
Check HVAC filters
Bodrozic says you should replace your air filters at least four times a year, but it’s best to check them once a month.
This keeps air in the house healthy and your system running efficiently because they are not clogged with debris or dust.
Inspect the automatic garage door safety shutoff
Test that the safety features of your automatic-opening garage door are still in good shape, says Bodrozic.
That includes the safety beams, which should stop the door from closing if it detects anything the door’s path.
