Home Maintenance 101

Just like regular oil changes keep up your car on the road, regular home maintenance keeps it in good condition. If you think it’s going to be a tedious task, you are probably mistaken. It won’t take your extra time and if it gets done regularly, it will save you wasting your hard earned money. However, it’s a long list of various tasks, but you schedule them accordingly. Since it’s a long list, we’ll feature all the checklist points in 4 posts so that you can also get time to check all the points yourself and if you get stuck, get help of local handyman. We have covered “Heating and Cooling” in this post. Have a look at the below checklist.

1. Check and clear primary & secondary condensate lines and pans

2. Inspect evaporator coil if accessible
