Writing New Year's Resolutions

2021 is here and everyone is busy getting started on their New Year’s resolutions. But do not forget that your home might need a few resolutions as well!

Make your home feel shiny and new again by following these home maintenance New Year’s resolutions.

Clean Your Dryer Vent

Cleaning your dryer vent is an easy home maintenance task to overlook, but ignoring it could cost you in the long run. Not only does a dirty dryer vent increase your monthly energy costs and decrease your dryer’s effectiveness, but it is also a major fire hazard! Make it a point to have a professional periodically clean your dryer vent.

If you cannot remember the last time you cleaned your dryer vent, give us a call! We are currently offering a $73 Dryer Vent Cleaning Special.

Check Your Sump Pump

A properly functioning sump pump is essential to preventing a flooded basement. This year, make an effort to check your sump pump regularly to ensure everything is flowing smoothly.

Install Motion Detection Lights

Installing outdoor lighting with motion sensors is an easy and effective home maintenance project to protect your home from potential theft. These lights are also extremely helpful and convenient at night.

Invest in Surge Protectors

Surge protectors shield your electronics and appliances from power surges. By simply plugging your electronics into surge protectors, you can save thousands of dollars by not needing to replace your devices in the event of a power surge.

Change Your Filters

Regularly changing your filter is one of the best ways to prolong the life of your HVAC unit. New filters increase the efficiency of your heating and cooling unit and save you money, so be sure to add this task to your home maintenance checklist in 2021!

We definitely recommend Tiger!
"My families a/c went out randomly today. I went around the house troubleshooting what I could. It got to the point where we had to call someone. We called the first places that showed up on google. Most places either wanted tons of money just for diagnostics, or couldn’t come out today. We called Tiger they went over the cost and they got someone out to our house in 45 minutes. Josh Moravec was our tech and was super professional, kind and intelligent. He was here for about 15 minutes before he figured out our issue. He went over in depth the cost and verified everything was good before getting started to resolve it. There was no pressure to buy the service if we didn’t want to. He went back down and in 15 minutes the a/c was running strong! He asked if we had any questions and then was on his way! He was great with our kids, very polite and courteous of me and my wife. He answered all our questions, and the price was more than reasonable. We definitely recommend Tiger, and make sure you ask for Josh Moravec if you can!"
