How to Prepare Your RI Home for Warmer Weather

There’s a lot to do this spring season to get our Rhode Island homes ready for the rising weather temperatures and set us up for success all year long. Check out our list below to learn exactly what you need to do to get your home spruced upĀ  for the rest of the year ahead:

Schedule your heating tune-up

Your heating system worked overtime to keep you warm all winter long. With the seasons beginning to change, why not ensure that your furnace or boiler stays in peak condition for the rest of the year with a spring tune-up? Request a heating tune-up today with our HVAC professionals.

Reduce dust & allergens with simple spring-cleaning tasks

Spring is a great time for refreshing your home’s indoor air quality. If your filters have already been replaced throughout your home, and your windowsills, screens, dryer vents, and doorways have been cleaned, the next step is to tackle some of the hidden dust and allergens embedded in your carpet. Luckily, this is easy to do by using or renting a carpet shampooing machine. We recommend doing this at least yearly to get the best indoor air quality results while keeping unnecessary pollutants in your home at bay.

Boost your cooling system’s efficiency

Warmer weather might have you already thinking about keeping cool indoors, which is why we believe that your A/C being in excellent condition is essential. Both ductless units and central air conditioners should be maintained with a service tune-up at least once a year. Booking your A/C tune-up can cut costs on your electricity bills, repair costs, and emergency service fees. If you’ve already had your HVAC equipment’s annual tune-up and you’re still not seeing the efficiency you’d like, consider upgrading to a newer system. New air conditioners will do the same job of cooling your home, increasing home comfort, and cleaning the air, but at a lower rate. These new, efficient models help you to save more energy (and money) during the seasons you rely on them the most! Contact us to request a quote today!

Practice fire safety

Now is as good a time as any to inspect your home fire safety equipment. If you haven’t done so yet this year, this season is the time to do so. Be sure to change your smoke detector and CO detector batteries, check the fire extinguisher expiration date, and remind children and family members in your household of an emergency meeting spot and procedure in case of a fire. Additionally, stock emergency ladders in second-story bedrooms and ensure doorways aren’t blocked by clutter regularly.

Top off your fuel tank

By requesting a heating oil tank fill-up during the springtime, you can ensure you’ll have fuel when you need it. Order today to enjoy our low daily price and the peace of mind that comes with having a full tank this season. Or better yet, enroll in automatic delivery today!
