For homeowners, a little prevention saves a lot of future hassle to keep your home comfortable. Regular home maintenance is also the key to preserving the value of your home. This proactive maintenance will ensure safety, enhance curb appeal, and lower risks of costly major repairs.
These minor upkeeps and repairs may seem low priority now, but before you know it they can turn from minor to very major. Things like small cracks in the caulk around your windows, failing to change the air filters regularly, or moisture getting into your air ducts resulting in mold can prove to be costly if not attended to in the early stages.
It’s clear that the consequences of neglected home maintenance are outright damages to your home. Your overall property value is affected without regular upkeep. Additionally, a home with sagging gutters, chipping paint, mold damage, or drafts or leaks is going to be very problematic when it comes time to sell. Proactive maintenance is going to be recognized by an appraiser when it comes time to determining your home’s value.
Our advice: play offense, not defense. Take the initiative by scheduling regular inspections. Plan ahead by having your air conditioner serviced during the winter months. Also, if you do plan on selling anytime soon, keep track of your maintenance and repairs.
Don’t be blindsided by any major repairs by keeping up on your home’s maintenance. Stay comfortable while safeguarding your home’s value. For questions or for more information, contact Climate Control KC. We’d love to help you make informed decisions when it comes to keeping your family comfortable.
