Tips for SummerSummer is just around the corner in Illinois, and our crew at CRNE’s Environmental Control could not be more excited. We love the change in weather, the time spent around the swimming pool or grilling out with friends. However, before you get busy with your summer plans, be sure to get your home ready for the change of season with these tips.

1. Feed your lawn.

Now is the time to start up your lawn-care schedule. Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional, you want to start fertilizing and maintaining your lawn as soon as that grass starts to green up and grow.

2. Clean out those gutters.

With all the spring rains, you need gutters that flow freely. Take time to get rid of anything that fall and winter left behind so your gutters can work properly. Failure to do so could result in water damage to your home.

3. Add some curb appeal.

Plant some flowers, spruce up your landscaping, or apply a fresh coat of paint to your home. Before summer heats up, give your home’s exterior some time and attention so that it can look its best all summer long.

4. Make those windows sparkle.

No one loves washing windows. However, your best bet for getting them done is to shoot the gap between the spring rains and the heat of summer. That way, you can enjoy a clear view out of those clean windows all summer long.

5. Have your AC serviced.

For the sake of your comfort and home maintenance, be sure to have your HVAC serviced before you need to run that air conditioning around the clock. Doing so can help extend the life of your AC unit and give you peace of mind that your air conditioning is ready to do some serious work this summer.
