Top 5 Home Maintenance Projects for Summers in Ontario

As a realtor, I can provide you with a checklist of five easy home maintenance projects that are suitable for the summer months in Ontario. These projects will help keep your home in good condition and address common maintenance tasks during this season:

  1. Inspect and clean the gutters: Summer is the perfect time to check your gutters for any debris, leaves, or dirt that may have accumulated during the spring. Clean out the gutters and ensure they are properly attached to the house. This will prevent water damage and ensure proper drainage during summer rains.

  2. Check and service your air conditioning system: With the hot summer months ahead, it's essential to make sure your air conditioning system is in good working order. Clean or replace air filters, check the condenser unit for debris, and consider scheduling a professional HVAC technician to perform maintenance, if necessary.

  3. Maintain your outdoor spaces: Take advantage of the warmer weather by tending to your outdoor areas. Trim overgrown bushes, hedges, and trees to enhance the appearance of your property. Inspect and repair any damaged fences, decks, or patios. Also, clean and reseal your wooden deck to protect it from the elements.

  4. Check and repair window and door seals: Inspect the weatherstripping and caulking around windows and doors to ensure a proper seal. Damaged or worn-out seals can lead to air leaks, reducing the efficiency of your air conditioning system and increasing energy costs. Replace or repair any damaged seals to maintain a comfortable indoor environment.

  5. Test and maintain your irrigation system: If you have an automated irrigation system for your lawn or garden, summer is an excellent time to check its functionality. Test each sprinkler head to ensure proper coverage and adjust as necessary. Clean or replace clogged nozzles and make any needed repairs to avoid water wastage and maintain healthy landscaping.

Remember, if you encounter any complex issues or are unsure about any specific maintenance tasks, it's always best to consult with professionals in the respective fields for expert advice or assistance.
