Improvement Tips

Improvement Tips

Texstar Inspections LLC

The best tip about home improvements is really just to keep up with maintenance.  Proper maintenance is the key to keeping your property and appliances in the best possible working order.  Eventually though, even with the best maintenance, things are bound to deteriorate.  When it comes to parts for appliances or even stairs or walls, the best thing to do is have them repaired as soon as possible.  Early repairs often times keep further damages from occurring.

Heating and Air Conditioning

When it comes to home appliances, one of the easiest to maintain but is often overlooked is maintenance for your air and heating equipment.  These are the most often used appliances in a home besides the refrigerator and the stove.  There are many things that you can do to keep your air and heating running and in good condition.  The best tip is to make sure that you change your filters on a regular basis.  You might also consider having a professional service technician clean out your ductwork and ventilation.  This will ensure that you are getting the best air flow and the cleanest air possible from your systems.  It can be easy to forget about maintaining this equipment, but to get the most out of it; you should put the maintenance on a schedule that you can follow.


Gutters and Downspouts

Your gutters and downspouts can be deficiency areas if they are not properly maintained.  Maintenance on gutters and downspouts is mostly just a matter of keeping the path clear of debris and leaves so that the water can flow as it was intended.  There are attachments for hoses and other tools that are on the market that can make this chore a lot easier.  If you are not a fan of heights, then you may want to have a professional gutter cleaner take care of this work.  Another good way to keep clogging debris out of your gutters is to have guards installed.  These guards keep leaves and twigs out of the gutter but still allow water to travel through it.

Smoke Detectors

Smoke detectors are the first defense in protecting you from fires or smoke inhalation.  However, improper maintenance of your smoke detector does not allow the unit to work properly.  All smoke detectors come with a low battery alarm, but most people are not even aware that the beeping is letting them know to change the batteries.  This is why it is important to have a regular routine of checking the unit to see if it is operating correctly.  One battery could be the difference between life and death.  These are very important pieces of equipment and they save lives every day.  Keep some extra batteries on hand and test your smoke detector about once every 2 months.
