Follow these simple tips to ensure that you are prepared for the summer season:

  • Empty dehumidifier pans and clean the hoses according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • If possible, take area rugs outside and hang them over a deck or porch rail to air out.
  • Close the chimney flue to prevent insects from entering and to help keep cool air in during the months ahead.
  • Open windows even on cooler days to get fresh air flowing throughout the home.
  • Inspect siding for cracks or other damage and make any needed repairs.
  • Have the air conditioning unit serviced to ensure good operation. Promote good air intake by keeping shrubs and plants around the unit trimmed.
  • Clear dirt and debris from gutters and eaves.
