The Township Senior Living Prepares for Warmer Weather

As our homes go through the freeze and thaw cycles, it is important that we take valuable and proactive steps to prevent issues. Due to the tilt of the Earth’s axis, the northern hemisphere begins to see the winter-scape come back to life with daffodils blooming, grass greening, and temperatures warming during late March into early April. As exciting as that can be, so many things need to be done to prepare for the warmer season, including spring cleaning, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors tested, and filters changed.

Now is one of the best times to utilize your green thumbs. Strategically planting shrubs and leafy trees near your business’ windows is a great way to prevent those same windows from transferring excess heat into the building. I always change air filters in spring and clean all the condensing coils. I check to make sure all windows and doors are properly sealed, test the stripping and caulking around the doors and windows, and replace where needed. Also, I always examine outdoor faucets and interior pipes for leaks or damage. It’s a great idea to go ahead and change all the smoke detector batteries in all your detectors as well.

Making sure everything is sealed on your windows and doors, so that we’re not trying to cool the outside, saves on utilities. Changing the air filters and making sure all the condensing coils are cleaned helps to maintain your units. Preparing for warmer weather can help make sure everything is working as it should.

I need to start preparing to work on my health and start taking better care of myself, so I can be more productive at work and in my personal life. I want to learn new technology in my field, possibly taking some HVAC courses or appliance repair, so I do not have to use outside vendors as much.

Before you break out the patio furniture and start planting your gardens, you might want to be like the experts at The Township Senior Living and get your home ready for a headache-free season.
