Today is the first day of spring. That means goodbye to winter’s cold harsh months and hello to warmer weather! Spring is the time of the year for fresh starts and new projects. It is also the perfect time to get your house ready to take on the summer.
If you’re anything like me, you love summer. The pool, the beach, frozen margaritas. Summer can be a nice oasis from life sometimes, but there’s still a few problems we need to take care of. Often times, our houses really take a beating in this hot, humid, Maryland weather. In case you didn’t already know, here are some annoying (and potentially costly) problems that you could be facing this upcoming summer.
(1) High AC Bills
Although the warm weather can be nice (especially after a long, cold winter), when it’s 80° outside your house and 90° inside your house, the glamor starts to wear off. Our first instinct is usually to pump up the AC until we reach a point where we feel nice and cool. But, as we all know, this costs us, every month.
(2) Excessive Moisture
Over here on the east coast it gets hot, but it also gets very muggy and humid. It’s not just us suffering through this; our homes are suffering too. Moisture comes seeping in (usually through your basement or crawl space) and can cause all kinds of problems. Structural failure, mold, mildew, and electrical issues are just a few examples.
(3) General Discomfort
Bills and mold are both serious issues that most people want to avoid. But, there’s still one more thing that is equally important that homeowners should keep in mind. You should be able to be comfortable in your own home. Your home is your escape, where you recharge after a long day at work, where you raise your family. If summertime rolls around and you and your family feel like you’re trapped in a heat box, then you are not enjoying your home.
These issues can all be avoided if you act now and prepare before summer gets here. Give us a call at 1-410-867-1202 and we’ll be happy to help make you and your family comfortable for this summer and many more to come.
