Welcome back to the Parker & Sons blog, where this week we have been discussing maintenance concerns for snowbirds. In our previous post, we covered a few important issues for individuals who will be leaving their homes unoccupied for the duration of the winter. Typically, the states from which our snowbirds leave during the winter are brutally cold. Cold to the point where homes can actually be damaged by the brutality of the elements. With proper winterization, snowbirds can leave their homes in the fall, confident that everything will be in excellent condition when they return several months later. Today, we are going to discuss a few of the concerns that snowbirds will face when they arrive at their winter homes here in Phoenix.
Heeeeeey there! Welcome back to Phoenix. We are so glad you came back to stay for the winter. We know you are excited to kick off your shoes and relax for a bit, after all, you have had a long trip, but before you can do that, you need to make sure your home is ready for fulltime occupation. Here at Parker & Sons, we generally recommend scheduling electrical, plumbing, and HVAC inspections. You are reliant on each of these systems in your daily life. When they have been sitting inactive for months on end, there is a potential for problems to develop. Inspection early in the season can catch latent issues, saving you massive headache and potentially huge repairs bills. Clogged pipes, frayed wires, dirty air filters, the number of problems that could be hiding just out of site are quite numerous. For the low cost of an inspection, you can catch all of them, address them cheaply, and have the peace of mind of knowing that your home is in excellent condition. What better way to start the season?
