Avoid the High Cost of Wear and Tear

When it comes to keeping your home’s surfaces, systems and appliances, there are a number of things you can do yourself throughout the year to ensure they last as long as possible. On the other hand, some problems can become increasingly expensive to remedy or could even lead to dangerous malfunction if they are not dealt with correctly. That’s why it’s often worth the service fee to rely on the expertise of professionals for the following issues.

Have your furnace serviced by a heating and cooling system contractor before the onset of winter to make sure it is functioning safely and efficiently. Do the same with your air conditioning unit before the heat sets in to keep it working well.
At the end of every winter season, hire a chimney sweep to examine the fireplace and chimney, and have it cleaned or repaired as recommended.
Call on a pest inspector periodically, or whenever you suspect critters may have moved in your space, to check for signs of termites, carpenter ants, bees, fungus, dry rot, bedbugs, mice or rats. Have any active infestations treated promptly to avoid serious damage.
Consult a professional service person or contractor for any ongoing maintenance issue that you don’t have the time, knowledge, tools, or resources to deal with yourself.
