5 Must Know Maintenance Skills for Every Homeowner
- Changing HVAC Filters
Change your HVAC filter quarterly to keep your system running smoothly and cut energy bills.
- 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.
- Unclogging Drains
A chemical drain cleaner may work, but you can also use a drain snake to mechanically remove a clog.
- 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”.
- Cleaning Gutters
When gutters aren’t cleared of debris, water can get trapped and seep into your house costing thousands.
