Tip from the Builder: prepare your home, building, land and property for summer.

There are a few things that you will need to do to prepare your house, land, building, property for the upcoming summer.  The weather has changed and your building or property needs your help to prepare.  These items will vary depending on your location and environment. 

Conditioned Air Space:

You may need to change your mechanical units (HVAC) from Heating to Cooling.  There should be a switch on the controller or thermostat that will allow you to make this adjustment.  Be sure to also replace your air filters.

Lawn Irrigation:

The plants and grass will need changes made to the watering schedule.  Make sure to adjust the irrigation timer for each individual zone.

Pool / Water feature:

Pools and water features will require additional attention during hotter days.  You will need to adjust the pump filter timer and possibly the chemicals required for the summer months.

Ceiling Fans:

There should be a small lever on the side of your ceiling fans to change the direction of the fan for the summer.  If you changed the direction for this past winter, be sure to move it back to blow the air down for summer months.
