Two Important Summer Maintenance Items

Summer is finally here and it is only going to get hotter in the coming months. Before the heat really kicks in there are some quick summer maintenance things that should be done to any home, especially to rental properties where unhappy tenants mean a loss of revenue.  Here are two things that should be looked at before the summer heat is overly intense:

Air Conditioner Checkup

Checking up on the AC that has been sitting unused for the past few months is always a good start to making sure you make it through the summer. The last thing you want to deal with is a phone call in the middle of the night about how the AC is not working. Checkups are fairly inexpensive considering the alternative. The older your AC the more important this task is to insure that it will last through another summer of extreme Arizona heat.

Landscape Watering Schedule

In the summer the sun rises much earlier and sets even later. With this it is important to change the grass watering times to ensure that the water is being used as efficiently as possible, otherwise the majority may just evaporate. Summer watering times are best in the early morning hours before the sun rises for the day. This can save your water bill and your yard. If you continue to water at the same times as you did in the winter the water evaporates before it has a chance to be absorbed and the yard suffers from dehydration.
