Whether you live in a condominium or a single family home, your home is NOT on auto pilot!! There are things that you need to pay attention to with regards to home maintenance. And we find that condominium owners tend to forget many of these things! 

 

  • Check your HVAC filters EVERY month. They may not need changing, or you may prefer to change them every month if you have any allergies, or maybe on open basement area. In a condo, yes, you are still going to have dust and stuff get in your filter.
  • Check for gas smells....if you HAVE a gas furnace system ( or also a hot water heater) be sure to see if you smell any gas...this could be signs of a potential leak and a serious problem
  • Look at exhaust vents -- any damage or deterioration? In a condo, this may be an HOA issue, or you probably have to repair it yourself, but it has to meet certain guidelines. (Check with your Management office)
  • Become familiar with normal operating sounds. Think of your car...when it makes a funny, or different sound, what do you do? You head to the mechanic to have it checked out so you are not left stranded along I-85! Do the same for your HVAC so you are not left hot or cold at the wrong time. 
  • THE BEST advice is to have an annual maintenance service provided in the Spring (start of peak A/C use) and the Fall, before the colder weather arrives. 

We strongly suggest you have a maintenance contract on your HVAC system. With this in place, you will get reminders from your service provider that your system is due for that check up...and it could prevent major problems from happening.

In Wisconsin...you had better have made your AC tune up appointment by now...hard to get when we finally get consistent warmer weather and worse yet when it fails during the summer !
