With Valentine’s and President’s Day just a few days away, not to mention steadily rising Valley temperatures, we are reminded that spring is not too far off. Although the Spring Equinox is not until Saturday, March 20th, there’s no reason why you can’t get a head start on vital building maintenance and schedule an appointment with a silicone sealant company for weatherization and other energy-saving services.
Clean Out the Gutters
If applicable, the gutters are designed to channel rainwater away from a property’s roof and foundation. They are crucial for preventing soil erosion and costly damage. Like autumn, spring presents the perfect opportunity for cleaning them, using the appropriate tools. Whether you choose to do this task yourself or hire someone to do it for you, it must be done to prevent clogs, which can even cause sealant problems.
Replace HVAC Air Filters
Regular replacement of the air filters in your building’s heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system provides several benefits. These include increasing airflow, decreasing excessive wear and tear on the unit, and ultimately extending the HVAC unit’s longevity. It also prevents allergens and other particles from circulating throughout the building. The best replacements, requiring less frequent changes, are rated as high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters and have a high minimum efficiency reporting value (MERV).
Check for Air Leaks Around Windows
According to ENERGY STAR, “air leakage accounts for between 25 and 40 percent of the energy used for heating and cooling in a typical residence,” so imagine how much energy your building may be losing. An immediate solution for eliminating air leaks, particularly those around your building’s joints and windows, is to hire a silicone sealant company to come out and apply a commercial-grade sealant.
