Getting Your Home Ready for Summer!

Summer is right around the corner, with plenty of warm weather and sunshine on the way. But along with the welcome change in the weather are harmful UV rays from the sun that can damage outdoor wood surfaces and sweltering heat that can run your utility bill through the roof.

Here are three great ways to protect your home from the sun’s rays and lower your utility bill during the long summer days ahead.

Protect Wood Outdoors

  • From furniture and decks to fences and siding, wood adds a touch of understated natural beauty to the exterior of your home. Wood also takes a lot of abuse from rain, snow, and sun. To protect the wood on your home from the elements and keep it looking good, it’ s important to stain wood surfaces with a quality exterior wood finish

Window Replacement

  • Replacing drafty single pane windows with insulated, double pane vinyl windows is a great way to save energy, reduce noise, and improve the look of your home. Choosing replacement windows which have a Low-E coating allows you to save even more on cooling bills this summer by reducing solar heat gain through the glass by as much as 58%.

Attic Insulation

  • Another way to reduce your utility bills, both summer and winter, is to make sure your attic has plenty of insulation. The Department of Energy recommends that homes have insulation in their attic with an R-value of between R-38 and R-49, or approximately 10” to 15” of insulation, depending on the type used.

Whatever your summer home maintenance project, ANDY ONCALL© is here to help!


ANDY’s Helpful Tips!

Energy Efficiency

 

Nobody likes cleaning, so there is often a focus on the stuff we can see (or see through) --- windows, floors, counters, etc. But lots of unseen things in our home also need regular cleaning to prevent more issues down the road.

  • Refrigerator --- clean the condenser coils, condenser fan, door gaskets, and drip openings.
  • Dryer --- clean the inside of your dryer and the exhaust vent to help prevent a fire.
  • Dishwasher --- clean the screen at the bottom of the dishwasher where the water drains and all of the other nooks and crannies where food bits always find their way.
  • Bath Fan Grill --- household dust, moisture and humidity combine to cake bathroom exhaust fans with debris.
  • Faucet Aerators --- unscrew the end of your kitchen or bath faucet to find the aerator. A simple rinse with water or some mild soap will many times fix a slow or uneven water flow.
  • Soffit Vents --- using compressed air, blow out debris from your soffit vents to maintain good attic ventilation.
  • Window Weep Holes --- weep holes are found on the exterior bottom of most vinyl windows and are designed to drain away rainwater. They can get plugged with bugs and debris thus causing water to spill over into your home.

The summer season generally means hot days and higher electricity costs, but there are ways in which we can still make our lives a little more energy efficient. Try these tips for an energy smart season!

  • Remember three important words: TURN IT OFF. Don't leave the video game on pause, or the computer in sleep mode. Those electronics are still using energy, even when you aren't using them.
  • If you replace five frequently used lights in your home with energy efficient bulbs you can save up to $60 a year.
  • Turn your water heater down to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to save money on your electricity bill. If you have children in the house, this is also a safety measure.
  • Postpone laundry and dishwashing until nighttime to avoid generating extra heat in your home. Also, consider taking advantage of the warmer air and dry your laundry outside.
  • Close blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest part of the day. This keeps the strong sunlight from heating your home.
  • Consider installing a ceiling fan. During hot weather a ceiling fan will create a cool breeze and keep the air circulating in your home.
  • If you have a pool, turn off your filter overnight when the pool is not in use.
