The Importance of Planned Maintenance

Home-ownership is full of highs and lows, from the joy of making that first offer on your new home to the frustration of having to make yet another repair. It’s a fair amount of work, but it’s also a great joy. For many people, making the shift from apartment renter to homeowner involves a significant learning curve. You no longer have a landlord to call up whenever something goes wrong, and at the end of the day, your property is completely your responsibility. You can’t simply let your lease run out and move somewhere new. You’ve put down roots and you have to make sure those roots continue to get what they need so the tree can grow. The Importance of Planned Maintenance


One of the most important things you can do to take care of your home is schedule regular planned maintenance appointments for all your major systems, including heating, cooling, electrical, and appliances, as well as routine maintenance on essential areas of your home like gutter repair and cleaning, drywall repair, and more. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as they say, and ensuring your home receives regular maintenance is the best way to locate and fix small problems before they get worse and you end up with a massive repair bill.


Planned maintenance is pretty simple in theory. A contractor or inspector comes out to your home to look everything over and make any recommendations for repairs as necessary. They may also replace small parts and filters as well as clean a system for better efficiency. It’s always better to schedule recommended repairs sooner rather than later so that you can avoid the problem worsening and causing you more problems later. Efficient systems aren’t only less likely to need major repairs, they’re also more energy-efficient, saving you big on your power bills. Even seemingly minor repairs can make a big difference in how your home operates.
