Spring Home Maintenance Checklist: The Ultimate Guide To Ensuring Comfort and Efficiency

The weather outside is warming up, and soon the days will start to get longer; spring is right around the corner! By tackling essential maintenance tasks now, you can ensure your home remains comfortable, efficient and problem-free throughout the warmer months. 

At ServiceOne, our team are experts when it comes to getting your home ready for the spring and summer months ahead. To help you get started, we've compiled a comprehensive spring home maintenance checklist that covers everything from HVAC inspections to plumbing maintenance and beyond.

Schedule an HVAC inspection and maintenance

First and foremost, spring is the ideal time to schedule an HVAC inspection and maintenance service with ServiceOne. Our skilled technicians will thoroughly inspect your heating and cooling system, clean vital components and ensure everything is in optimal working condition. By addressing any issues early on, you can avoid unexpected breakdowns and ensure your HVAC system operates efficiently all season long. 

On top of having your AC inspected before the summer months, spring is also a great time to replace your home’s air filter for optimal efficiency and comfort!

Seal cracks and gaps

Inspect the exterior of your home for any cracks, gaps or openings that may have developed over the winter months. These openings can allow warm air to escape in the winter and cool air to seep out in the summer, leading to energy waste and higher utility bills. By using caulk or weatherstripping to seal any cracks around windows, doors and vents, you can help improve energy efficiency and indoor comfort for the warm months ahead!

Check and clean gutters and downspouts

Spring showers can quickly overwhelm clogged gutters and downspouts, leading to water damage and potential flooding around your home's foundation. Take the time to inspect your gutters and downspouts for debris, such as leaves, twigs and dirt, and remove any obstructions. Doing this will significantly reduce the risk of flooding and water damage around your home’s foundation!

Test your sump pump

If you have a sump pump in your basement or crawlspace, spring is the perfect time to test it to ensure it's in proper working order. Pour a bucket of water into the sump pit to trigger the pump and verify that it activates and removes the water as intended. If you encounter any issues or concerns, contact ServiceOne for professional sump pump inspection and maintenance services.

Inspect and maintain your plumbing system:

Inspect your plumbing fixtures, faucets and pipes for any signs of leaks, corrosion or damage. Check for water stains on walls and ceilings, as well as musty odors or mold growth, which may indicate hidden plumbing leaks. Consider scheduling a plumbing maintenance service with ServiceOne to address any issues and ensure your plumbing system operates smoothly and efficiently.

Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors

Spring is an excellent time to test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they're functioning correctly. Replace the batteries if needed and vacuum any dust or debris that may have accumulated on the sensors. If you don't have carbon monoxide detectors installed, consider adding them to your home for added safety and peace of mind.

Improve indoor air quality

Finally, take steps to improve the indoor air quality of your home by investing in air quality solutions from ServiceOne. Consider installing an air purifier or UV germicidal light system to remove airborne contaminants such as dust, pollen and mold spores.
