Why You Should Schedule Your HOA Appliance Checkups in the Winter
When to Schedule HOA Appliance Checkups
You Don’t Want to Get Left in the Cold
The severity of winter weather varies from region to region, but no matter where you live, things get colder during this time of year. If your heating system isn’t working properly, you’ll suffer a long, cold winter. Additionally, this chilly internal climate can have negative effects on your interior painting, pipes/plumbing, and other appliances. Scheduling a checkup of your entire HVAC system this winter will ensure that you keep warm and keep your home’s interior in proper shape.
Breathe in Clean Air All Winter Long
The ongoing use of your heating system and lack of fresh air during the winter can negatively affect your home’s internal air quality, especially if your filters are outdated or haven’t been cleaned in some time. Unless you want dust, toxins, and other harmful materials to linger inside your home all winter, have your filters and ventilation systems inspected, cleaned, and/or replaced.
Prevent Potential Fires
Home fires most commonly occur during the winter months due to faulty appliances, and the overuse/neglect of heating and electrical devices. The main culprits of these fires include dryers, ovens, furnaces/heating systems, backup generators, and candles. While accidents can happen regardless of the working order of home appliances, neglecting these appliances increases the chances of such a devastating event. So, it’s important to have someone check up on your Northern California HOA appliances this winter to reduce the risk of fires. Condo painting services may also be able to help you fireproof your property.
Avoid Food Shortages
It’s always a good idea to have some extra food stored in your home in case of emergencies, especially during the winter when it’s possible to get snowed in or iced out. While your non-perishable food items can survive in most conditions, food that must be kept cold or frozen will quickly go bad if your refrigerator or freezer stops working. Additionally, if your oven goes out of order, you won’t be able to cook these items. If you want to ensure that you’ll have plenty to eat this winter, then, schedule an inspection of your kitchen appliances.
Retain HOA Compliance
Every HOA has its own set of rules and guidelines, such as HOA painting protocols, noise ordinances, landscaping regulations, and so on. Maintenance responsibilities are included in this document as well. As previously mentioned, homeowners are typically required to care for their own appliances -- in other words, if something breaks down, the HOA won’t be responsible for fixing or replacing it. Of course, if an appliance malfunction leads to further damage to your Northern California HOA property, you may face penalties and fines. The best way to avoid such outcomes is to take good care of your appliances year-round. And winter happens to be a great time to invest in a thorough inspection.
