Important Home Maintenance Tasks – Where to Spend Your Money? (Part 2 of Best Bang for Your Buck)
Important home maintenance tasks to do soon. First on the list is HVAC maintenance. It is important for Arizona homeowners to have someone service their HVAC units on an annual basis. After all, this will help keep it running in tip top shape longer. Although this may be true, another recommendation is to change the air filter in your home monthly. This will also help to keep your AC unit working as it should.
Keep your roof happy and leak free. In reality, the felt underlayment can last 20 to 25 years. On the contrary your roof tiles can last between 40 and 50 years. The simple thing to do is check the roof tiles and mortar packs to make sure none of them are cracked. An experienced roofer can check the underlayment as well.
Shut- Off Valves
Of course, shut – off valves are often overlooked. Therefore, out of sight out of mind. Especially, when they are under sinks in cabinets and behind toilets. With this in mind, the valves can potentially create an expensive mess for homeowners. Due to the hard water in the Valley, if a homeowner does not have a whole house water treatment system it is best to keep on eye on these pesky valves. And, consider changing out the plastic valves in the bathroom and laundry for metal. By all means check on them once in awhile. The valves are under $50 each to replace, with parts and labor and can save you thousands of dollars.
Here’s a Tip!
Know what your home sounds like! Be familiar with the sound your home makes. For instance, knowing what it sounds like when your air conditioner is running. Likewise, there are a fair number of expensive repairs you can avoid if you pay attention to the signs and indicators of your home.
