It feels like Spring just started, but summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to learn how to prepare your home for Summer.
There’s going to be some hot months ahead of us, especially in Colorado, so it’s always a good idea to making preparations early. This can help you reduce your energy bill, improve your home’s energy efficiency, increase the overall safety of your home, as well as improve the efficiency of your home’s individual components. Here’s our how to prepare for summer home renovation checklist!
Clean Gutters and Drains
Cleaning out the gutters and drains on your property is usually the last thing people think about, but it should be forgotten about as this is one of the most important chores to do in order to make your home summer ready. Leaves, mud, and other debris can pile up and clog the gutters, which can lead to leaks in the walls and roof. By putting this at the top of your list, you can avoid the high costs that come with water damage.
According to American Financing, the “Energy Saving Trust reports that you can enjoy significant savings every year on your power bills by having quality insulation set up by a professional.” They go on to mention that ¼ of the heat stored in your house escapes through the roof, which is why installing insulation in the attic space and any cavity walls is vital to keeping your energy costs low.

Protect Your Pipes
You know how cold it can get here during the winter in Colorado, which sometimes leads to damaged pipes. In order to fix this before summer begins, you need to apply lagging to the pipe’s surface. Lagging is basically a “material used for thermal insulation.” This is why it’s important to apply this material during the summer in order to prevent damaged pipes the following winter.
Check On Your HVAC System
Your home’s central heating and cooling system is a vital part of its overall functionality, which is why it should be taken care of. It is best to get your heating system checked out and repaired if necessary before the cooler months of fall and winter set it, as most HVAC companies are less busy with heating in the summer months. American Financing says that, “Regular maintenance can extend the life of your furnace, help avoid carbon monoxide leaks, and improve the efficiency of your unit.”
Repair Your Windows
Just as you don’t want heat to escape during the winter, you don’t want the cool air escaping during the hot summer months. That’s why it’s important to repair or replace damaged windows. You can repair your windows by applying caulk on any gaps or cracks, which should do the job. If your windows need a little extra TLC, we offer top-quality window replacement and installation.
