Summer is around the corner in Frederick County, and as the weather is warming up, now is the right time you to get your Frederick County home ready for the warmer months ahead.
If you’re still getting used to the idea of spring, and your house isn’t ready for hot summer days, this article will offer you several tips that you can use to get your home ready.
Tip #1 – Inspect Your Frederick County Home Weather Striping
The first thing you need to do to get your Frederick County home ready for summer is to inspect weather stripping and replace it when needed.
This is an important first step because, having weather stripping will keep the cool air in your home when the A/C is running, and keep the warm air out during those hot summer months.
Tip #2 – Get Your HVAC Tuned Up
Has it been a while since you had your HVAC tuned up? If so, now is the right time to get it ready for the summer months because an HVAC tune-up will ensure that it’s in peak condition and able to handle the demand that you will place on it during the warmer months ahead.
Tip #3 – Check Your Ceiling Fans
Did you reverse your ceiling fan blades before the start of winter? If so, now is to flip the switch on each ceiling fan and reverse those ceiling fans so that they are spinning in the correct direction.
The airflow directly underneath the ceiling fan should push down, creating a wind-chill effect, which is going to make you feel cool.
Tip #4 – Invest In Insulated Curtains
Another handy thing that you can do to get your home ready for summer is to invest in insulated curtains. Having insulated curtains will keep each room cool during the summer months and lower your overall energy costs.
Tip #5 – Inspect Your Attic
Last of all, but most important, if you’ve never invested in new insulation for your attic, now is the time because the majority of your home’s energy loss is due to poor insulation in the attic.
