Ah, spring! The flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, and those projects that you’ve put off all winter are on your mind – and your to-do list.
I urge you to also remember the systems that got you through the winter. That heating and cooling system could use a tune-up, fresh filters, perhaps a duct cleaning. For those of us on well and septic, the pressure tank, water softeners, and other water filtering equipment could use an inspection. And probably more salt.
Don’t forget the fridge filter for your water and ice.
Take care of the house that takes care of you, and you will be rewarded with more efficient systems that last longer, and help you maintain the value of your home.
