April Maintenance Calendar

Hammer

Now that Spring has arrived, it is time to turn our attention to the outdoors. It is time to prepare our gardens for flowering through the warm season; maybe add some fertilizer and mulch. It is time to uncover the patio furniture, hang up the hammock and get the gardening equipment ready for another season of sun.

Gasoline powered equipment such as lawn mowers do not run cleanly. In fact, the average gas mower puts out as much pollution in one hour as a car does in ten hours.

Consider replacing an old gas mower with an electric model, or even better, choose a push mower and get some exercise as a side benefit.


Did you know you can run the furnace fan to filter the air in your home without operating the furnace in most cases?

The filter system in your furnace can do anywhere from a fair to very good job of air filtration depending upon the equipment and filters used.

Turn the furnace from "Heat" to "Off" and turn the fan from "Auto" to "On. You can turn the fan on and off periodically to filter the air as needed.



This list is provided for your convenience, it is not a comprehensive list of every maintenance item your home may require.
