- Replace Air Filters

- Reseal Windows
- Over time the sealing on your windows can decay, crack and fall off. Take time to reseal any windows that need it with caulk.
- Spring-Clean your HVAC Unit
- Clear your outside HVAC unit of any branches, leaves and other debris. Keeping your unit clear will help keep it in working condition.
- Fix any Leaks
- Small leaks between toilet bowl and tank can add up to big costs.
- Clean Showerhead and Household Faucets
- This may sound down and dirty but should be done. Take a small plastic bag and fill it halfway with vinegar. Place over showerhead (or faucet) and secure with rubber band. Let sit for 1-2 hours, remove bag and give the area a quick scrub. All of the buildup should come right and you’ll be left with a sparkling finish!
- Relabel your Breakers
- Labeling the Breaker controls in your panel can be very helpful, especially if one trips.
- Test your GFCI’s
- GFCI outlets serve a very important purpose of detecting when an electrical current is running through something that it shouldn’t be, such as water, and shutting off the current when needed.
- Feed your Fridge a Dollar
- The seal on your fridge is important, it keeps your food cool and fresh while helping your fridge run more efficiently. To test the seal, take a dollar bill and close it between the fridge door and yourself. Try to remove the dollar. It should not come out easily – there should be tension. If the dollar does slide out easily, the seal is compromised or the fridge may be misaligned.
- Filter your Drains
- Adding a filter to open bathtub drains is quick, easy.
- Change Batteries!
