Home Maintenance Checklist
The quickest fix is to not have the problem in the first place. Here's a useful free checklist of items every homeowner should visit regularly.
Test your garage door opener to ensure that it reverses when it hits an obstruction or when its sensor beam is interrupted.
Vacuum the clothes dryer's exhaust duct at least once a year. If the duct is plastic, replace it (it's a fire hazard). Rigid sheet-metal ducting is best.
Replace furnace filters quarterly, or as recommended by the furnace manufacturer.
Test all GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets regularly. Press the test button to make sure the power goes off.
Clean leaves and debris from the condenser of a central air conditioner seasonally.
Once a year, vacuum the refrigerator coils underneath or behind appliances.
Clean eaves troughs and check downspouts annually.
Inspect window and door caulking and weather stripping annually.
Replace the batteries in smoke detectors every year. Remember, even recent hard-wired smoke detectors have backup batteries that must be replaced. If you have never checked yours, do so today.
