5 Must Know Maintenance Skills for Every Homeowner

  1. Changing HVAC Filters

Change your HVAC filter quarterly to keep your system running smoothly and cut energy bills.

  1. Cutting the Water Supply

Find and tag the shut-off valve when you first move in (or do so if you have not already). When the time comes, turn the handle 90 degrees.

  1. Unclogging Drains

A chemical drain cleaner may work, but you can also use a drain snake to mechanically remove a clog.

  1. Resetting a Circuit Breaker

To reset a breaker, open the panel cover(s) and find the breaker in the “off” position. Push it to “on”.

  1. Cleaning Gutters

When gutters aren’t cleared of debris, water can get trapped and seep into your house costing thousands.
