4 Monthly Maintenance Tasks You Shouldn’t Overlook

Regular maintenance is an important part of owning a home. This includes many routine tasks that you need to address at least once a month. It’s unlikely that you’ll forget more visible monthly maintenance jobs for your Wake Forest home, like mowing the lawn, but many equally important jobs can go unseen and overlooked if you’re not careful. Mark your calendar for these essential tasks.

Change Your HVAC Filter

You should change the filter in your HVAC system once a month for optimum energy efficiency. This is a quick and simple task that takes just seconds when you have extra filters on hand. Keep a three to six month supply nearby so you don’t have any excuses for putting off this job.

Clean the Range Hood Filter

The filter in your range hood is home to a wealth of grease and grime. Remove it monthly and soak it in hot water and a degreaser in the sink. This should take care of the buildup with minimal hassle.

Inspect the Exterior HVAC Unit

Give your exterior HVAC unit a quick once-over. Clear away leaves and debris in the fall and keep grass and shrubbery trimmed back in the spring and summer. If you notice any problem signs, like bent fins, unusual noises, or a thin layer of ice over the unit in summer, you should call an HVAC technician to address the problem. If you pay attention to the unit on a regular basis, it will be easier to spot these conditions early.

Clean Your Garbage Disposal

The moist, dark conditions in your garbage disposal are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria. To keep it clean, run ice cubes through to knock off grease and grime. Next, pour down half a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar. Finish it off by running a lemon peel through the disposal.

Combine your monthly home maintenance with a professional annual tune-up to keep your HVAC system in prime condition. Contact Air Experts at 919-480-2727 to schedule your visit.
