Warm Weather Checklist

The days get longer and your thoughts turn to the outdoors. Before you get carried away by summer holiday planning, take a few minutes and let our warm weather checklist remind you of those house care projects.

  • Check the wood siding and trim for signs of deterioration; clean, replace, or refinish as necessary. For vinyl siding, check for cracks and breaks, replace if possible. For stone cladding, check the mortar to repair as necessary
  • Clean the eaves to ensure that spring time rain water goes where it is supposed to.
  • Have well water tested for quality and safety
  • Turn off the humidifier on your furnace or change the HRV to the summer setting.
  • Check fences and deck railings, replace or repair as necessary.
  • Disconnect your dryer duct, vacuum the lint from the duct and the dryer hood outside your house.
  • Check and repair window screens
  • Check and replace the caulking sealing the different exterior  service pipes to your siding (dyer vent, furnace vent, HRV, hot water tank, sump pump)
  • Check all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Clean the outside of your windows to let that summer sun shine in.
  • Clean up the yard and the garden, remove any debris that accumulated over the winter.

Tip of the Week

Summer fun:

Turn off your air conditioner and let the cooler nights help keep your house a moderate temperature. Close the windows in the morning to preserve the cooler morning air. Then open the windows again in the late evening. This will help minimize your hydro bill and save your air conditioner for the most extreme heat.
