Repair home exteriors, windows, and doors. Plan to paint? Summer is a great time for power-washing, sealing, and refinishing outdoor structures (such as decks or outbuildings). Many homeowners also lubricate doors, locks, sliding-glass doors, garage doors and window casings to prepare for swelling that can take place in hot and humid climates. Adding screened windows and doors is a great—and inexpensive—way to invite cool air into your home in lieu of running air conditioning if you live in a mild climate.
Keep cultivating the garden and “hardscaping.” During summer’s busy growing season, be sure to service lawn mowers and lubricate push mowers, and sharpen garden tools. Summer is also a good season for patching concrete, and repairing asphalt or cement patios and sidewalks. Wooden deck surfaces should be refinished annually with a sealant, and this can be done at any point during summer or before the cool weather comes in fall.

 Ceiling Fans

A ceiling fan can be a welcome addition to any room. It allows for a more comfortable atmosphere during any season, whether it’s hot or cold outside. It can help keep electric bills down in the summer and help disperse the warm air more evenly in the winter. If you have reservations about installing one yourself, just check out this easy to follow guide to help you install a ceiling fan.
