Tips to Prepare Your Home For Summer Time

How Are Your Window Screens?

Bugs are a hallmark of summer; you can bet on thousands upon thousands of pests. Take the time to check your window screens. Holes and tears can allow pests into your home, causing problems for you and your family. Have these repaired as soon as possible.


Storms are more frequent during these months. Inspect your landscape and make sure you cut any branches from trees that can cause damage to your home. At the same time, see if you should plant any new plants. Trees and shrubs can help your home with energy efficiency by breaking up the sun as it hits your home.

Check Your Attic

During the winter, your attic insulation took a lot of damage. Check it. If you notice any moisture or if it looks a little low, you may need new insulation. Remember that insulation also keeps pests out and can even help keep the cool in your home this summer.

AC Check Up

Have your AC inspected! Having your air conditioner inspected can help determine any pre-existing problems and get your AC back in shape. There is nothing worse than kicking on your air conditioner this summer just to find out you need a new system. Prevent it by taking care of this early.
