Back-to-school season is fast approaching and can be stressful for kids and parents! These tips and tricks make things less stressful for everyone in the home.

Schedule Heater Maintenance Early

Take care of your home maintenance tasks early so that when school is in session, you can spend more time focusing on the kiddos and their schedule rather than monotonous but essential tasks.

While it might seem like you can push heater maintenance to the back burner, it’s never a good idea. First, regular maintenance ensures that your heating system operates at its peak efficiency, saving you from unnecessary high energy costs. Second, it helps in identifying potential problems early, preventing unexpected breakdowns during the chilly months when you need your heater the most. Additionally, routine maintenance extends the lifespan of your heating system and keeps it running safely. Without proper check-ups, components of your system could wear out or malfunction, which could lead to carbon monoxide leaks, posing a serious health risk to your family.

Replace Air Filters Now

Replacing air filters in your home or office is crucial for maintaining good indoor air quality. Over time, the air filters in your HVAC system trap dust, pollen, pet dander, and other airborne particles, which can clog up the filter.

A clogged filter restricts the airflow, causing your system to work harder than it should, leading to higher energy bills and potential damage to your HVAC system. Moreover, a dirty air filter can't effectively filter out pollutants, thus negatively impacting the air quality in your space. This can lead to health issues like allergies, asthma flare-ups, and other respiratory problems. Therefore, regular replacement of air filters is essential for the efficiency of your HVAC system and the health of everyone in the space.

Go School Shopping Early

Take another major stressor off your mind by doing your back-to-school shopping early! Doing your back-to-school shopping early has several benefits. Firstly, it allows you to avoid the rush and stress of last-minute shopping. It gives you ample time to compare prices across different stores, thus helping you find the best deals and save money. Early shopping also ensures you have a wider selection of items to choose from, as stores tend to be fully stocked at the beginning of the shopping season.
