Home Maintenance Becomes High-Tech

Home Maintenance
“Am I supposed to mow the lawn? Or can that wait until next month?”

Compared to years past, maintaining your home has become much easier in the twenty-first century. Imagine the amount of time you can save with tools like smoke pencils and laser levels, not to mention space-age gadgets like robotic vacuums and gutter cleaners. These days, the hardest aspect of home maintenance is remembering to do it.

Until now.

Introducing Home Maintenance Notification Systems

There are a few home maintenance notification products that are designed to address this problem. After all, the average homeowner’s life is so busy that he or she is likely to put off completing important home maintenance tasks – or even to forget about them altogether. When this happens, the home itself can be exposed to significant damage that may lead to very costly repairs down the road.

That’s why a home maintenance notification system can help. These computer programs are set up to send periodic reminders to homeowners pertaining to these types of tasks. The messages are usually delivered via phone text messages or computer emails, thereby allowing homeowners to make a note on their calendar or to-do list to take care of this chore.

How Can They Help?

Though these systems differ, they can help notify homeowners when the time comes to:

  • clean out their gutters
  • check their smoke detector batteries
  • replace filters in air vents or heaters
  • look for air leaks around windows and doors
  • inspect attic for leaks and adequate insulation
  • clean their chimney
  • test sump pumps and ground fault interrupters
  • have furnaces or air conditioning units inspected
  • clean out traps under sinks and drains
  • look for leaks in roof shingles and eaves

Or to feed your fish. (Although upside-down floating fish would perform the same function.)

Other Home-Related Alert Systems

In addition, some of these systems can be paired with other helpful alert-based tools. For instance, the program can perform a similar function for automotive maintenance like reminding you to change your vehicle’s oil or check its fan belts. It can also send you alerts when severe weather is approaching your home, thus enabling you to take the appropriate precautions. If you utilize wireless cameras in your home, a security system can take pictures whenever the front door is opened or your liquor cabinet is unlocked. Finally, the home maintenance alert system may be able to be incorporated into your day-to-day calendar alerts that inform you about birthdays, remind you to refill prescriptions, and even put grocery items on your shopping list.

Some of these notification systems are stand-alone products, while others may be affiliated with insurance companies or home security providers. It’s not difficult to see how this industry may expand in the near future given the popularity of alert systems in general. Of course, none of these systems will be effective if you still neglect to perform the home maintenance chores themselves.

I recently had the Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet installed on my house. It not only looks amazing, but the guys arrived on time, were professional and efficiently got the job done. I am very satisfied with Gutter Helmet's attention to detail and fulfilling their work as promised. I will definitely tell my neighbors about the Gutter Helmet.
I have had Gutter Helmets for 20 years. In all that time I've never had a problem until recently a bird's nest found its way into one of my gutters. The installer who came to replace the product was the same installer from 20 years earlier. Now that's impressive. Everyone at Gutter Helmet inclusive of the office staff were professional and a pleasure to work with.
Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet just replaced our roof and we could not be more satisfied. The crew showed up early, worked all day and stayed late, were professional and caring regarding the project and the surrounding impact it had on our property and home. They completed the roof quickly and it looks simply amazing!
VERY happy with our entire experience adding Gutter Helmet by Harry Helmet to our house. Installing this was a great value for us. The gutters are working perfectly in heavy downpours and with year-long leaves and debris coming down from our river birches. Terrific customer service and a first class product.
We needed our roof repaired due to wind damage. After several quotes, Gutter Helmet was the only company that went into our attic to look and see if more damage had occurred. If it wasn't for them taking the extra time to look at everything, we would have had rotting wood under our new roof. They were very professional and gave a fair quote.
We just had Gutter Helmet installed on our gutters and couldn't be happier. They provided us with useful information about Gutter Helmet and cleaned up everything, leaving no mess behind. We definitely recommend Gutter Helmet to anyone considering this product.
