With Summer fast approaching, and the ever unpredictable Oklahoma weather, preparing our homes for Summer is very important. Yahoo recently posted a great article entitled, "7 Ways to Get Your Home Ready for Summer". Read on for some of these tips from Yahoo as well as some additional great information from Tulsa Realtor, Darryl Baskin.
When preparing your Tulsa home for the Summer weather, remember these things:
Always make sure you have proper Tulsa homeowner's insurance coverage. Oklahoma weather can be crazy and unpredictable. Being without proper coverage can quickly spell disaster. Talk to your Tulsa insurance agent now about your insurance policy.
"Tune Up Your Air-Conditioner" (Yahoo). An annual air-conditioning and heating tune-up is important. Technicians can clean and repair your unit to help ensure that it works its best. This, in turn, can even save you money on energy bills. Talk to your Tulsa area Air-Conditioning Company to schedule an appointment today.
"Rethink Your Appliance Use" (Yahoo). Appliances such as your oven, create heat in your home which can mean your air-conditioning unit has to work more to keep your house cool. Try skipping the oven and use the grill, crockpot, or fix something that requires no heating. Also, if you are considering upgrading your appliances, make sure they are energy efficent.
Prepare the outdside of your home for the heat. With warm weather and storms can come many problems. To help alleviate some of them remember to do the following:
Take care of your flowerbed now. Make sure you weed, water, and cover your beds with mulch. This can help protect your plants during the summer months. Talk to a Tulsa area lawn and landscape company for help with your flowerbeds and lawn care.
Install outdoor lighting and electrical outlets. Outdoor lighting is a great way to increase security around your home. Also, talk to a Tulsa electrician to install electrical outlets and outdoor lighting. This works great for electric weed eaters, lighting, and many other projects you may run into this summer.
Take care of exterior maintenance and remodeling. Now is a great time to take care of outdoor remodeling and Tulsa home maintenance needs. Touch up paint, replace siding, install that great outdoor kitchen and deck. Whatever it is that needs to be done, start now before it gets too hot. Contact your Tulsa building and remodeling contractor now for help with remodeling and building projects.
Have fun!! Warm weather is here and school is out. Have fun, enjoy your family, and enjoy the nice weather while its here.
