Many of the custom homes we build are on or near the water. And while we love the Florida lifestyle of living on the water as much as our customers, we always recommend taking time to protect your home from the salt air and humidity that comes from life by the water. Here are some items we suggest checking monthly for your Florida home:
- Change HVAC or furnace filters. If your family is small and pet-free, simply inspect the filter and replace every 2-3 months.
- Clean range hood filters. Mix a degreaser with hot water, let it soak, then rinse it off.
- Check water softener. Check the salt level, add some if needed, and read the display to make sure no error codes are displayed. You’ll usually only add salt a few times a year.
