Undoubtedly, all homeowners want their house to be aesthetically appealing, comfortable, and high-valued. Now that summer is here, many homeowners in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, are planning their renovation projects. If you’re unsure how you can improve your home, here are three projects you should consider doing this summer.
Apply a Fresh Coat of Paint
An easy way homeowners can spiff up is by applying a fresh new coat of paint to the interior or the exterior of their home. Over the years, paint can chip and stain due to wear and tear. Fortunately, not only is painting your home an easy DIY project for the summer, but it’s also relatively cheap. The paint and labor will be the priciest aspects of the home project, but you may be able to handle the labor on your own so that you don’t have to hire a contractor.
Lay Mulch in Your Yard
Another home project you need to do this summer is laying mulch in your yard. Not only will mulch beautify the exterior of your home, but it will also cut the amount of weeding you’ll need to do. Mulch deprives weeds of oxygen and helps the soil keep moisture. If you want to spend as little as possible, you can make your own mulch from grass clippings, shredded wood or bark, raked leaves, and even cardboard.
Maintain Your HVAC System
The last home project you need to do this summer is HVAC maintenance. HVAC systems are often very complex, which means they can break down on occasion. Homeowners who fail to properly maintain their HVAC systems often find that their heaters and air conditioners no longer work when they need them the most. To make sure your HVAC system will still be up and running come winter, you should hire a HVAC technician to maintain them.
If you want to spruce up your home and keep yourself occupied at the same time, consider the three home projects above. For more information about HVAC maintenance, don’t hesitate to contact one of our HVAC experts from Custom Aire. Call us at (215) 638-1800.
