Improving your home’s protection against the elements and keeping it in good shape should always be on your list of priorities. Installing Gutter Helmet®, one of the best gutter protection systems available today, will save you from constant gutter cleaning and protect your exterior from damage. The new year is a great time to start thinking about good home maintenance habits to start and bad habits to break.

Good Habits to Start

Check Your Gutter Regularly

Your gutters divert water to a safe distance away from your home, protecting it from costly water damage. Make sure to have your gutters professionally inspected, cleaned and maintained regularly. With an efficient gutter system, you can avoid expensive repairs in and outside your house. 

Remove Lint From the Dryer Trap

Allowing lint to build up in the dryer trap will strain the appliance and result in higher energy costs. Also, lint is a common cause of household fires because it is a combustible material. Regularly cleaning the lint trap will reduce the risk of a house fire and will help you avoid repair costs. 

Replace HVAC Filters Regularly

Dirty air filters are among the most common causes of HVAC malfunctions. They restrict airflow in the system, causing it to exert more effort to reach your desired temperature. Failing to replace HVAC filters regularly will also negatively affect your indoor air quality. 

Bad Habits to Break

DIY-ing Complex Renovation Projects

As cliche as it sounds, you shouldn’t try to fix something that isn’t broken. Renovating your home by yourself may seem like a good idea, but major renovation projects are more complex than you think. If you have no experience or training on the job, you are likely to make mistakes that could be costly to repair.

Skipping Routine Inspections

Many people neglect their home until it shows obvious signs of damage. Keeping up with regular inspections and maintenance of your HVAC system, roof, chimney, and gutters will save you money because it allows you to identify and repair minor issues before they cause costly damage. Remember that extensive repairs and total replacements are more expensive than routine maintenance.
