Is a Quarterly Home Maintenance Plan Right for You?

Posted by Andrew Balfour on Jun 2, 2021 3:00:00 PM

While many people benefit from a monthly home maintenance plan, some people do not need quite this much help caring for their home. If you like doing some basic maintenance yourself, but you still want a little assistance here and there, then a quarterly home maintenance plan may be a better fit for your needs.

What is a quarterly home maintenance plan?

Put simply, this type of maintenance plan involves technicians coming out to your home just once per season — four times per year. A service manager will coordinate the tasks performed each time and make sure the correct technicians are sent out, according to your needs.

There are a few benefits of this type of plan:

  • It comes at a lower cost than monthly plans, helping clients stick to budgetary constraints.
  • It prioritizes those seasonal maintenance items that need to be taken care of at specific times of the year while also keeping an eye on your home’s critical systems.
  • It helps maintain your home value. Your home will be up-to-date and in good shape if you ever decide to sell.

Every customer who utilizes our quarterly home maintenance plan is different. However, this is a common plan among new homeowners who are just starting to adapt to the demands of homeownership. It's also popular with busy professionals juggling work and family life.

What services does a quarterly home maintenance plan include?

Some services are performed every visit, and others are performed only during certain seasons.

Every Visit

Every visit — or four times a year — our technicians will check your smoke detectors and CO detectors, change your air filters, remove sediment from your hot water tank, and make sure your dehumidifiers are emptied and functioning.

There are also specific services performed quarterly in your kitchen and bathrooms, and on your home exterior. Basically, our technicians will make sure your plumbing fixtures and equipment are maintained and functioning well. They'll freshen your fridge, sharpen your disposal, inspect the toilets and more. You can find a complete list of every-season services on our website

Seasonal Maintenance Tasks

There are other services which are performed once a year, during the season during which they are most beneficial.

In the spring, your technician will change batteries in your smoke detectors, CO detectors, and thermostats. They'll check your attic and attic fans, turn on hose bibs, and install window screens.

In the summer, your technician will clean dryer vents, inspect the roof and washer hoses, replace garage door batteries, and trim trees as needed.

Fall is the season for another smoke detector battery change. Your technician will also replace weatherstripping if needed, winterize hose bibs and install storm windows.

Winter calls for indoor tasks including cleaning the refrigerator coils and dishwasher screens, checking shut-off valves, and cleaning air returns.

Our quarterly maintenance plans are a comprehensive and budget-friendly choice for many customers. Contact Hassle Free Home Services to learn more about these plans and the specific services you can expect with each appointment.
