Summer in Colorado can be quite intense – our powerful sun and extreme heat can take a toll on your home and its systems. Therefore, it’s crucial to perform preventative maintenance before the heat arrives to ensure optimal safety and comfort all season long.

It’s important to understand your home’s systems and where to find them in this maintenance process, so feel free to ask one of our tech’s next time you have us in your home if you have any questions.

Here are our top tips for preparing your home for summer in Colorado:

– Check your outdoor wiring: Replace any exposed or frayed wires before your system works overtime and causes damage to your home.

– Test your outlets: Diagnose problematic outlets by checking all your indoor and outdoor outlets to ensure they’re providing the proper power.

– Install Surge Protectors: Protect your high-value devices from possible damage by plugging them into surge protectors.

– Clean the exterior of your home: Ensure that your fixtures are operating correctly by cleaning them. Also, trimming trees and bushes can remove potential fire hazards.

– Inspect and secure your interior cords: Replacing damaged cords is crucial since they pose a serious fire hazard, and properly stored cords minimize the risk of injury or accidents. Keep all cords out of reach from children and pets to prevent tripping accidents or fires.

Prepare Your Home for Summer

– Maintain your HVAC system: To ensure that they’re operating at peak efficiency when you need them, replace your furnace filter and clean your A/C unit. Cleaning your dryer vents can also prevent possible fire hazards.

– Consider Solar: Installing solar panels on or around your home can take advantage of the readily available sunlight that beats down on us during the season, reducing your carbon footprint and saving you money in the long run.

– Create an emergency kit: Even with all the preventative maintenance in the world, accidents can still occur. Staying prepared by having an emergency kit available that includes flashlights, batteries, portable chargers, blankets, etc., is crucial.

Colorado is a wonderful place to live, and we are grateful for its mile-high heat. However, it’s crucial to take the necessary preventative measures to ensure that your home stays comfortable and safe all summer long.
