It got me thinking about how many other simple items in my house should be adjusted, updated, or replaced on a regular basis for optimum performance. Manufacturers release these suggested maintenance lists for vehicles, why not have one for homes? Maybe there is one out there and I missed it.
This idea of a whole-home maintenance list may be something that you as a trusted contractor and service provider could offer to the homeowner for a fee. Instead of just signing maintenance agreements on the HVAC equipment, why not have agreements made for whole-home maintenance? The items on the list your company cannot handle could be opportunities for some add-on business or inter-trade partnering. Both could lead to great profits. Pitch your ideas for what should be on the whole-home maintenance list below in the comments section.
