Image result for spring tips

Here are some spring tips from my my preferred insurance agent, Tom Benisch Insurance and Financial Services, Inc. at State Farm Insurance.  His contact information is listed below:

  • Replace your furnace filter
  • Clean the kitchen exhaust hood and air filters.
  • Check all electrical outlets for loose fitting plugs and look for burn marks at the main electrical panel.  Check all ground fault circuit interrupter-type outlets.
  • Repair all cracked, broken or uneven driveways and walks for a level surface.
  • Make sure the light bulbs in all your fixtures are the correct wattage.
  • Consider installing a lightning protection system on your home.
  • Protect electrical appliances from power surges by installing surge protectors.
  • Have a professional air conditioning contractor inspect and maintain your system as recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Review your fire escape plan with your family.
  • Check for roof deterioration before spring showers begin.
  • Run through a severe weather drill with your family.
  • Clean clothes dryer exhaust duct, damper and space under dryer.
  • Check the sump pump for proper operation.  Consider installing a battery backup for the sump pump if you don’t already have one.
  • Replace all extension cords that have become brittle or worn.
  • Inspect and clean the covers of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
