Hello, April… so nice to meet you. It’s time to sit back, reminisce about the long, cold winter, and look forward to a fabulous new season. And since we’re already more than a week in, how about some of that warmer weather that’s been promised to us?
I know, I know – patience is a virtue. But after that long (really long) winter we just survived, you can’t blame me for wanting to press “fast forward” to summer! However, just before the season arrives, there are few things that we’ll need to do:
1) Spring Cleaning. Ugh! My least favourite part of the reboot. Each spring, I rediscover the same things about myself; I am a hoarder, I am disorganized, and I am particularly lazy when it comes to dusting shutters. Spring cleaning is bad for my self-esteem!
2) Winter Spoils. My stamped concrete driveway is a little worse for wear after road salt from our boots has had its way with the porous material. Similarly, my roof’s shingles have seen better days… perhaps being blanketed with cold snow for five months+ will do that. Taking inventory of the items that need to be refurbished and repaired is necessary to ensure your home stays beautiful (and functional).
3) Summer-Proofing. We’ve waited SO LONG for the warm weather to come… you definitely want to make sure your home is ready for summer. Each spring, in addition to replacing the batteries in your smoke alarms, replacing outdoor bulbs and clearing your gutters, have you ever considered purchasing a Protection and Maintenance Plan for your air conditioner and/or heater? Here’s my story.
I’ve been a home owner for almost 8 years! (And in some ways, that’s downright scary.) However, home ownership has not always been smooth sailing. Like that time we lost hot water… three days after we brought Ryder home from the hospital. Or the time our air conditioner conked off in the middle of a heat wave. And I probably should mention that time our heat just didn’t kick in at the start of the season… forcing us to wear winter coats in our home… in October.
Each time, it cost us a pretty penny to get everything sorted out. Our air conditioner’s refrigerant leak cost hundreds of dollars to repair. And our broken furnace motor? *CRY*. We don’t even talk about it ’round here. The repair that shall not be named.
Think it can’t happen to you? Yeah, me too. Until I had to sacrifice a Marc Jacobs handbag for cool air.
