Preparing Your Investment Property For Summer
Service / maintain air conditioning
With another long, hot summer looming, it is a good idea for landlords to service the air conditioning units so that it works to the best of its capability.
The cost of servicing the unit can be substantially less than repairing or replacing the unit if it breaks down.
Servicing ducted air conditioning systems is especially important, as they may need to be manually switched over from heating to cool and have the vent re-opened on the roof.
An efficient air conditioning system can go a long way to maintaining a strong relationship between a landlord and their tenant. No one wants to be caught without cooling on a hot summer day.
