Posted by Andrew Balfour on Jun 22, 2022 2:30:00 PM

Subscription-based home maintenance plans can save you time, money, and headaches. But how often should you have the maintenance technicians come to your home? Monthly service works well for some customers, but others do best with a quarterly maintenance plan. Keep reading to learn more about the monthly and seasonal maintenance plans from Hassle Free Home Services. A few details should help you decide which subscription service better suits your needs.

Monthly Maintenance Plans

With a monthly maintenance plan, a technician will visit your home, as scheduled, every month of the year. With this subscription, essentially all necessary home maintenance will be handled by your home maintenance company. There won't be anything left for you to do!

Who Does This Plan Work Well For?

Monthly service plans are popular with older homeowners who no longer feel capable of maintaining their own home. They're also popular with those who travel for work and don't have time to worry about projects at home. Homeowners with a limited range of motion or chronic illness can also benefit from a monthly plan.

What Tasks Are Included?

You can find a complete list of services included in the monthly maintenance plan on our website. Essentially, during each visit, your technician will complete any maintenance that needs to be done on the inside or outside of the home. Tasks completed every month include:

  • Checking smoke detectors
  • Emptying the dehumidifier
  • Changing air filters
  • Cleaning the garbage disposal
  • Cleaning drains

Your maintenance technician will also complete various seasonal tasks. For example, between January and June, they'll check your weatherstripping, trim trees, and service your garage door. Between July and December, they'll winterize your hose bib, clean HVAC returns, and install storm windows.

Seasonal Maintenance Plans

With a seasonal subscription-based home maintenance plan, your technician will visit four times a year — once every season.

Who Does This Plan Work Well For?

Seasonal home maintenance plans are popular with new homeowners, busy professionals, and families. Many who choose the seasonal maintenance plan have a little time to maintain their own home, but they want to reduce their burden by leaving the bigger maintenance tasks to professionals. 

What Tasks Are Included?

Visit this page for a complete list of services included in the seasonal maintenance package. During every visit, your technician will complete certain tasks such as testing the smoke detector and CO alarm, draining sediment from the hot water heater, and clearing drains.

Your technician will also do different maintenance each season. In the spring, for example, they'll check the attic for leaks and install window screens In the fall, they'll turn off hose bibs and install storm windows.

Whether you choose a monthly or seasonal plan, subscription-based home maintenance services can make your life so much easier. Contact Hassle Free Home Services if you have questions about either of these plans. We can consult with you about your needs and recommend the plan that fits them best.
