Summer House Checkups

Air Conditioner:

  • Inspect the unit to make sure it’s in good working condition.
  • The A/C must be levelled and free from obstruction.
  • Do not fully cover your A/C unit during the winter or it will cause the fins to rust inside. Instead, consider covering it with a piece of plywood and secure it with a rock.


  • Maintain your deck by ensuring it’s stained or painted on a regular basis.
  • Check the overall structure every Spring and Fall.
  • Ensure there are proper footings to prevent sinking.
  • Proper guardrails should be at least 36” to 42” tall.


  • Ensure entrance has a working fire-rated door with auto closure.
  • Check safety lasers on automatic door openers are aligned and operational.
  • Use a wood block to test door closure for pressure

Rodents/Pest Prevention:

  • Check for common rodent entry points, including open gaps in the exterior.
  • Another common entry point is where the A/C lines enter the house.
