Springtime is a popular time for Rockledge, FL residents to tackle home projects. Whether it’s a major home overhaul or just a deep clean, spring is the perfect time to get your home in order. Here are our top three favorite springtime home projects to complete to help inspire you to start on your own!
Windows are one of the most often forgotten about components of a household. While they are interacted with on a daily basis, window maintenance is rarely performed. This spring, check around your windows and look at the state of the caulking and weather stripping.
Florida weather can be brutal on these joints and ensuring that they’re intact and in good shape can save you a ton of money on your electricity bill. Poorly sealed windows with cracked caulking and shredding weather stripping can let out a lot of cool air, leading to increased strain on your climate control unit and reduced indoor air quality.
Inspect AC Unit
Even in South Florida, your AC unit won’t see a lot of action during the typically cool winter months. When the temperature starts climbing again, its time to get your unit checked out to make sure everything is good to go. An inspection should include the exterior and interior portions of the unit as well as all the hoses and other associated components. While you may be able to perform cursory checks yourself, a full inspection and maintenance should be left to the professionals.
A traditional springtime deep cleaning shouldn’t be overlooked either. Get your house ready for spring by committing to a serious clean of your entire home, from big jobs like cleaning tile grout to smaller tasks like dusting surfaces. Overlooked cleaning tasks include washing drapes, vacuuming beneath area rugs, and washing both the inside and outside of any glass surfaces like sliding doors and windows.
