Spring is the perfect time of the year to tackle all home improvement projects and tasks that have taken backseats in the previous months. This season signals a fresh approach for you to revitalize your abode for the warmer weather. But what aspect of home improvement should you focus this spring season?
Our team at Kirk Air Conditioning & Heating will tell you some… so keep reading.
Repair Your Roof
Small holes or damages on your rooftop should be your concern. These little issues caused by heavy winter can lead to major problems over time. Small holes allow water to enter the attic and walls. To spot them, check your shingles for damage and trace where the water leakages came from. If the repair seems overwhelming, call the experts for professional service.
Check Your Windows and Doors
Your windows and doors are two of the culprits for high energy bills. Cracks and gaps there allow the heated and conditioned air to leak out, making your energy consumption even higher. If window and door replacement seems an impractical option, try sealing the cracks using weather-stripping or caulk.
Update Your Siding
Your home’s siding can get damaged due to heavy winter and strong wind. Replacing a loose piece or warped siding is a simple project that can be done in spring. So if your home has an old siding, consider replacing it with energy-efficient and easy-to-maintain vinyl siding. Not only does it beef up your home’s insulation, but it also patches the gaps and cracks that contribute to energy inefficiency.
Adding extra layers of insulation in your attic is another spring home improvement project that helps keep your home comfortable and improve your cooling unit’s efficiency. Insulation helps your home get a constant temperature in warmer weather, which is relatively helpful in lowering your energy consumption. Call your local heating and cooling company for professional attic insulation.
Schedule Your A/C Maintenance
If you missed your A/C maintenance last fall season, then today is the best time to do it. Call your local contractor for expert inspection and tune-up of your air conditioner. Issues hiding in your unit will be addressed and fixed right away before they become problematic and costly. Professional maintenance can also help lower your energy bills, improve your unit’s performance, and enhance your system’s lifespan.
Make your home comfortable without paying high energy bills and worrying about your abode’s safety. This spring, be sure to call the most reliable professionals to tackle all the complex home improvement projects you have in mind. Contact our team at Kirk Air Conditioning & Heating for any of your heating and cooling repair and service needs.
