Protecting Your Home During the Arizona Summer

Protecting Your Home During the Arizona Summer

With its warm climate and natural beauty, Arizona is a fantastic place to call home.  However, summertime can bring intense weather, and without the right preparations, your property could be severely damaged.  Fortunately, by taking the right steps, you can protect your home during the Arizona summer.

Air-conditioning

A well-functioning air conditioning system is essential to keeping cool during the summer in Arizona.  When temperatures swell to 105 or more, the last thing you want is for your system to breakdown.  Routine maintenance can help ensure your AC is operating efficiently and well when you need it the most.  Schedule your annual service, make any necessary repairs, be sure you are changing your filters, and perform all other recommended maintenance tasks.

Monsoon Preparation

Although Arizona is known for its hot and dry desert conditions, between mid-June and late September the state has a monsoon season.   These summer storms can be intense, and it’s essential that the roof of your property is in excellent condition in order to withstand strong winds and possible debris.  If you have not already done so, it would be a good idea to have a roofer assess your roof and make any necessary repairs.

Irrigation System Care

With the season’s high temperatures, your outdoor irrigation equipment is going to be working overtime. When your systems are under pressure, they can malfunction or leak without you being able to detect a problem. Routine maintenance throughout the year can help you prevent these issues.  However, if you suspect something is wrong with your irrigation system, contact a professional as soon as possible to look into the matter.

Pool Systems

Having a pool to enjoy during your Arizona summer can be an enjoyable way to beat the heat.  You will want to ensure the pump and other equipment are in excellent shape so that the system can perform efficiently.  If you expect to leave for the summer, do not drain your pool.  The heat could crack or otherwise damage your pool.   Be sure to have a pool maintenance company to keep your water at the optimum level and treat it to prevent bacteria growth.

Fire and Desert Growth

Arizona’s arid conditions combined with scorching summer heat make desert fire a real possibility.  When a fire begins and vegetation is dry, it can quickly spread to trees, plants, and shrubs near housing.  If your home has desert growth around it, be sure it is trimmed away from any structures.
