As the seasons change, so does the extent to which certain systems in your home are used. While that fact is a bit more obvious when winter comes, it’s still very true during the summer.
For example, since kids are home from school, (and we’re all spending more time at home right now, for that matter) think about these questions:
- How many more toilet flushes are happening?
- How many more showers are happening? (ok, maybe not that many…)
- How many more dishes are being washed?
- How much has your A/C been running?
- How often has the grass needed to be watered?
Questions like these highlight the fact that for the average home, there is an increased use of septic systems, HVAC units, water heaters, and sprinkler systems during the summer. It’s important to give these systems a check to make sure there are no leaks, cracks, or other damage. This can prevent a considerable expense of time and money later on.
