The Importance of Summer Property Maintenance

< Blog list

A great way to make your summer special is by taking care of your property before winter arrives.

You may think that summer isn’t the time for property maintenance, but there are many reasons why summer is prime season for repair work and why it should be a priority now. Let’s take a look at just three of them: pipes, plumbing and boiler servicing.

Proper plumbing and boiler maintenance requires attention now so that you can avoid expensive repairs later.

Keep the water flowing

Pipes can freeze in cold weather and burst because they don’t have water flowing through them regularly. If you wait until winter to fix plumbing problems, the cost will go up as well as the risk of damage to other parts of your home. And if you wait until winter to call a plumber round, you’ll be in a queue stuck behind everyone else.

When it comes to plumbing problems, there’s a chance water will cease to flow through the pipes during the colder months, at a crucial time when the pipes are under pressure. If plumbing maintenance isn’t something you can handle yourself, get help from an expert before plumbing problems become plumbing catastrophes. And, by tackling plumbing repairs early, you avoid a plumbing disaster during colder months when it’s not only too late, but harder to get an appointment with an expert.

Summer plumbing maintenance

Not only can plumbing issues cause burst pipes and floods, but they can also lead to electrical hazards. It’s important to inspect plumbing regularly – plumbing is the lifeline that keeps our homes from flooding and our critical appliances running. Even a minor plumbing issue that goes unchecked can lead to huge plumbing disasters.

Inspecting your plumbing system for leaks, clogs, and corrosion is an important summer task. Appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines release a steady stream of water into their drainage systems which will overflow if the plumbing isn’t working properly. With plumbing emergencies on the rise, there’s no time like the present to take care of plumbing needs before winter.

Bleeding the radiators before you need them

Another task that should be completed in the summer months is bleeding the radiators. Bleeding the radiators removes air and prevents water from freezing during winter when it may not be able to circulate properly. This minor plumbing task takes only a few minutes and can save you from having to call a plumber come wintertime.

Servicing your boiler

Summer is a time for many people to relax and enjoy the warmer weather. And believe it or not, it's also a time when your boiler, air conditioner (if you’re lucky!), or other heating system takes on more work in order to keep you cool. That means it's especially important to make sure your heating equipment is functioning properly this summer before you head into the colder months when you are more dependent on that boiler.

Get ready for winter

These property maintenance tasks that should be completed in the summer months are all simple to do. And, if done properly now, they can also save you a lot of money down the road.
