Crucial Indoor & Outdoor Summer Tasks for Homeowners in RI & MA

Ready to get started? Here are the top home maintenance tasks our home comfort professionals at Aquidneck Services recommend adding to your summer-readiness checklist this year:

Take care of windows and doors

Take advantage of cooler nighttime temperatures by turning off your A/C system and opening your windows for a break on your energy bills. Give your windowsills and screens a good scrub so built-up dust particles don’t blow back into your home, reducing air quality and clogging air vents.

Book your equipment tune-ups

Scheduling your A/C tune-up now will help you maximize your summer enjoyment by keeping your home cool—but did you know that now is also the perfect time to prep for winter by booking a heating system tune-up? That way, you’ll have plenty of time to complete any necessary repairs before the weather gets chilly again.

Prevent cooled air from escaping

Don’t waste energy by letting your home’s cool air escape through pesky air leaks in your doorframes and windows! Be sure to add caulk or weather stripping to these areas to save money and help keep your home even more comfortable all summer long.

Save with a high-efficiency HVAC upgrade

Homeowners who upgrade their heating or cooling systems to a new high-efficiency model can expect to save up to 30% on their energy bills. Aquidneck Services is pleased to offer a variety of financing options to help offset the cost of new HVAC equipment. You can reach out to us today for a free estimate.

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. 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.

Enroll in an A/C service plan

The comprehensive coverage of an Aquidneck Services A/C service plan can help protect your central or ductless air conditioning equipment and your wallet against unexpected repair costs. Kick back and relax this summer knowing that your home comfort is protected!
