Replace Air Filter

To help ensure your family breaths clean air this spring, replace the air filter on your HVAC system. The spring season brings about allergies and pollen in the air. A new filter can help to eliminate those pesky allergens from circulating through your home. It's important to help improve the air quality your family breathes on a daily basis.

Check Batteries

Take a few minutes this spring to check your batteries. Replace batteries in your fire alarms. It's important that these devices work when needed - it could save the life of anyone in your home. Also, consider investing in a carbon monoxide detector - this scentless gas is deadly and difficult to detect.

Deep Clean Dryer Vent

While you likely clean out your lint trap each time you use the dryer, you should do a deeper clean a few times a year. Dust and lint particles can get past the trap and work its way into your dryer exhaust. Over time this may build up and become a fire hazard. Try to remove the vent and clean it out on a regular basis.

Stock Up First Aid Kit

With more and more outdoor activities taking place in the near future, you may want to have your first aid kit ready. From splinters to bug bites to scrapes, there are many situations in which this kit can be helpful. It's important to have these items on hand that way you can treat any injuries and get back to your activities!

Seal Entrances

Make sure your entrances are sealed well. Re-caulk your window sills and fill in any gaps around your doors. It's a great time of year to do these tasks so you can keep the colder air inside your home and the warm out outside, once the warm weather hits.
