Your Yearly Maintenance Check-list

Use our tips to maintain a healthy environment in your home year-round 

Being a homeowner is one of life’s great joys but with that comes a lot of responsibility. There are so many important things to keep running well throughout the year. After all, you don’t want to wake up to water all over the floor of your dining room or suffer from no air conditioning during a summer heatwave. Instead, regular maintenance throughout the year is the key to avoiding these potential disasters. Keep your home in tip-top shape and read on for a checklist from our team of experts. Don’t forget to save this so that you can refer back to it season after season. 


  • Change your air filters


  • Air conditioning maintenance check-in. Have your machine inspected to ensure that nothing is broken or obstructing your machine.
  • Run bleach through our A/C unit lines 
  • Change the filters of your A/C unit
  • Purge the TPR valve on your water heater
  • Drain any sediment from your hot water tank
  • Clean your dryer vent lines with the help of a professional
  • Have your air ducts in your home cleaned, if it’s been more than 5 years since your last cleaning. A professional can help do this safely.
  • Keep your gutters clean and clear any debris that has built up like fallen leaves 
  • Clean out the p-traps underneath your sink to prevent clogs from occurring


  • Check your showerheads and faucets for leaks and rust. If you see either, it may be time for a replacement. 
  • Check your dishwasher and laundry machine water connections to make sure they are secure. You do not want any leaks or corroded lines.

  • Run your garbage disposal to make sure it’s still in good working condition. 


  • Have your furnace checked and tuned up by an expert like Blanton and Sons
