Do These 4 Things to Get Ready for Summer

May 17, 2016

The weather is heating up and summer is nearly here. Before the high humidity and higher temperatures arrive, get your Ocala, Florida, home ready so you can be cool, comfortable, and relaxed all summer long.

Take Care of Your Windows

Now is a good time to clean the windows, fix the screens, and seal any cracks or openings. You’ll also want to clean your blinds and curtains, or hang new ones. In the early mornings and late evenings, when the breeze is just right, you may want to open your windows. But during the heat of the day, make sure they keep the warm air outside.

Get Ready for Watering

The quick five-minute storms common in a Florida summer aren’t always enough to take care of your lawn, gardens, or flower beds. Since you’ll probably need to do some watering over the next few months, take the time to check your hoses, spigots, sprinklers, and irrigation system to make sure everything is in good working condition.

Prepare to Relax and Unwind

Summer is a great time for enjoying the pool and grilling. It’s a good idea to clean and inspect your grill. You may need to fix or replace it this year. You’ll want to get ready for the summer maintenance on your pool as well. Give it a good cleaning and make sure the pH balance is right — or call the pool guy to take care of it for you. Also, fix any loose decking or broken steps on your patio or back deck before you have everyone over for hamburgers by the pool.

Keep Cool All Summer with HVAC Maintenance

Schedule your HVAC maintenance and service before the hottest days arrive. We’ll check to make sure everything is in good working condition so you don’t have any nasty surprises later. Change your filters once a month, and use your ceiling fans to help circulate cool air.

When you’re ready to schedule service for your air conditioner or other HVAC system, contact us at Sun Kool Air Conditioning by calling 352-282-4763.
