Now that the Winter is finally over and Spring is here, it’s time to start looking ahead to the Summer so you can get your home ready. Summer is such an amazing time to enjoy your home, especially the outside spaces, so you should make a few improvements to get the most out of it. These are some of the best home improvements to do in time for the Summer.
Sort Out Your HVAC System
This is a practical one and it’s a home improvement project that people tend to neglect. Your HVAC system needs to be maintained properly if it’s going to work properly and you should do it sooner rather than later because you will need your air conditioning once the weather starts to heat up. The filters need to be changed on a regular basis or they will get clogged up and the air conditioning won’t work properly. If they haven’t been looked at for a while, it might be worth having them serviced to make sure that there are no issues. If your HVAC system has seen better days, you should think about replacing the whole thing. You’ll be grateful that you fixed your HVAC system when those hot Summer days arrive.
Upgrade Your Patio
The garden doesn’t get much use in the Winter so it often gets neglected. Areas like the patio are going to get a lot of use in the next few months, so you should take the opportunity to clean them up now. There are a few simple things you can do to improve your patio area like updating the plants or power washing it. You could even do some more extensive improvements, like installing an outdoor kitchen area.
Paint The Exterior
Exterior home care is tough in the Winter because the weather isn’t on your side. You can’t get any painting done because the rain won’t let up long enough for it to dry, so your home exterior falls into disrepair. But if you wait until the height of Summer, you’ll have to struggle through the heat while you’re up on a ladder all day. That’s why the Spring is the best time to paint your home exterior. Just make sure that you check the weather forecast regularly so you don’t paint just before a Spring shower.
Service Your Boiler
You might think that there’s no need to service your boiler because you’re not going to be using it that much over the next few months. But that’s exactly why you should service your boiler at the moment because you’re less reliant on it. If you need to do any work, it’s easier because you are not using the heating anyway. The last thing you want is for the boiler to pack up in the middle of Winter when you need the heating on all of the time. So, get it sorted out now and you can avoid any problems in the future.
Spring is the perfect time to start making changes to your home so get on with these improvement projects now to get your home ready for the Summer.
