Is Your Home Ready for Spring? | Mr. Electric of Austin

Is your home ready for the hotter days ahead?

Rather than take your chances, our team at Mr. Electric of Austin wants you to go ahead and prepare for the spring and summer now. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can do just that.

Clear Out the Debris

First things first, do a little spring-cleaning of your AC unit. Take a look at the unit and make sure there is nothing obstructing the air flow.

In addition, you want to make sure that any shrubs or branches are at least two feet away from the unit to prevent the condenser fan from sucking in leaves, dirt and other debris. This will help keep your air conditioner running efficiently.

When cleaning out debris from your air unit, you also will want to check your gutters to make sure the water is draining properly. This will help prevent any drainage down into your crawl space or basement.

Get Your Outdoor Equipment Ready

Now that the weather is warming up and the grass is growing again, it is time to get your equipment ready to tackle your outdoor to-do list this spring.

Take time to check your lawn equipment to make sure it is ready for spring and summer. Remember, sharp-cutting blades are a sure bet to make yardwork a lot easier on you this season.

Be sure to take care of your equipment so that it will take care of you when handling the lawn this spring and summer.

Replace Your Windows

Do you like to keep the windows open during the spring months? Then, you want to make sure your window screens are in good shape so that only air is blowing through, not bugs or debris.

Now’s also a good time to check the framing around windows and whether it may be time to replace the screens and/or windows.

A spring HVAC check is also something to add to your to-do list! Give our team at Mr. Electric of Austin a call today.
