Whether you are a new home owner or have owned your home for years, the cost of owning a home can be greatly reduced by conducting simple routing maintenance. From décor to repair, to replacement costs, the cost of home ownership is often the American family's most expensive cash outlay. Home maintenance chores are daunting for new homeowners unfamiliar with the repair and upkeep requirements of older homes.
When the list of home-repair chores keeps getting longer and longer homeowners need to prioritize. What is most important?
HVAC system: High up on the to-do list should be the home's heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system, whether that means a furnace, air-conditioning unit, heat pump or other components. The HVAC system should be serviced at least once or twice a year because poor maintenance practices lead to costly repairs. Dirty air filters lead to myriad problems.
