Our Tips to Get Your Home Ready for Spring
Spring is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start preparing your South Shore home for the coming warmer weather. Follow the tips below to help stay on top of whatever Mother Nature will have in store for us in the coming months, as well as keep your home’s heating equipment in tip-top shape in the off months.
Get Your Heating Oil Tank Filled with an Oil Delivery
One of the best ways to prepare your home for spring is to make sure your heating oil tank is full. Keeping a full oil fuel tank during the warmer months helps prevent condensation from building inside the tank, which can cause rust and internal corrosion. When your tank is corroding, it is likely a leak will occur, which is a costly mess you don’t want to deal with. Call Reggie’s Oil for a fill-up today to help keep your tank protected.

Get an Annual Heating & Cooling Tune-up
If you haven’t had your heating or A/C system a tune-up, now is the time to schedule one. Tune-ups improve efficiency and help lower energy bills. After a long winter of working hard, your heating system deserves some love. It’s also best to give your A/C a once over before the summer weather begins.
Benefits of Spring Tune-ups
A lot of homeowners worry about their heating system once it’s cold, and their A/C when it’s hot outside. That’s why spring is the perfect time to schedule tune-ups for both systems so you can stay ahead and keep those unpleasant and untimely surprises at bay. Scheduling a spring tune-up means:
- More flexible scheduling for tune-ups in off months
- Guarantee your system is up for the weather BEFORE it happens
- Increased efficiency
Clean Your Ducts
Cleaning is synonymous with springtime and that should include the air ducts in your HVAC system. Not only will you remove dust, dirt, and debris that could irritate allergies, but you’ll benefit from cleaner indoor air and better efficiency from your A/C. If you’re considering installing an A/C before the summer sweltering begins, the experienced professionals at Reggie’s Oil can answer any questions you may have and walk you through the best products for your needs.
Get Rid of Clutter
Give your home breathing room by removing clutter that has gathered throughout your home over the winter months. During the winter, the air in your house gets locked in, allowing an ideal environment for airborne bacteria, mold, dust, dirt, and anything brought in from the outdoors to grow inside. This can be especially dangerous if you, or someone in your family, has allergies or asthma.
