A Dozen Tips for 2021
To keep your favorite space in the best shape possible for all who enter, Miller’s, your No.1 company for boiler installation in Norfolk is sharing 12 great indoor comfort ideas. Follow these checks for each month:
To avoid freezing or burst pipes, be sure to keep your thermostat consistent, your pipes insulated and your garage doors closed. Don’t forget to seal any pipe cracks that look suspicious, too.
Has your generator been serviced lately? Do a test run to ensure it’s in top condition—just in case a power outage hits. Changing the oil and replacing the filters are also critical. The last thing you want during a February cold snap is a home without power!
March: AC maintenance
While you still might be throwing on those extra layers, you can’t deny that spring is just around the corner. Call the team at Miller’s for your annual spring AC maintenance so you’re ahead of the game when warmer weather hits.
April: Smoke alarms & carbon monoxide detectors
If you didn’t change the batteries in your smoke alarms or CO2 detectors during the Daylight Saving Time change, you shouldn’t put it off any longer. Being prepared is the best way to keep your family protected against potential fires and silent, potentially deadly gases.
May: Change filters
Springtime is when the air changes and allergies creep in. Take control of what enters your home’s space by changing your air filters. Your lungs will thank you!
June: Indoor air quality
Now’s the time to check your home’s humidity and IAQ levels—and address any issues that might be affecting the health of your indoor air. Concerns? Our IAQ experts can help recommend solutions.
July: Surge protection
Virginia can have its share of summer storms—even electrical ones. Keep your home, your appliances and all of your devices protected with professional surge protection services from Miller’s!
August: Drain cleaning
Clogged drains can lead to larger problems. If you’ve noticed slow drains or funky smells, a professional drain cleaning can be just what the plumbing doctor ordered. Our master plumbers can do a thorough drain cleaning so your systems are fully functional again.
September: Change filters again
Seasons change—and your air filters should, too. Once again, switch out those old filters for fresh ones.
October: Heating maintenance
Preparation is key! October is prime time to schedule heating maintenance so your system is raring to go when those temperatures dip. Don’t wait until something goes wrong. Call now to prevent issues during the chill of winter.
November: Plumbing checkup
This month marks the start of the holiday season. Hopefully, the pandemic will be far behind us and large gatherings will be safe again. If so, it’s imperative that your plumbing works flawlessly. A quick check and little fine-tuning can make the entire season clean and bright.
December: Electrical check
Holiday lights and extra baking call for more energy use. Be sure your electrical panel is up to code and all of your receptacles and outlets are GFCI (ground-fault circuit interrupter)-compliant. If you have concerns, our electricians can help put your mind at ease.
