Summer is officially here as of June 1st, but Tucson property managers and Tucson residents alike knew that summer started ages ago in Arizona. If you’re choosing to enjoy summer out of town for a while or leaving for the whole summer, it’s best to make sure your home is protected from the Arizona heat as much as possible. It’stime to “summer-ize” your home and here’s how.

Set Air Conditioning

Tucson property managers recommend you change the furnace filter especially if you are leaving the A/C on while you’re gone for the summer. Some people choose to turn the air conditioner off completely, but seeing how hot it can get in Arizona it might be best to set your thermostat to a high temperature of 95 degrees while you’re away.

Bye Bye Bugs

Property managers in Tucson know that summer brings an increase of bees, wasps, spiders, and ants into the home. So if you’re going to be leaving your home for the summer, be sure to have your home sprayed for pests and remove any open containers, bags or boxes of food that might tantalize unwanted guests.

Take Care of Bills

To save costs, consider turning off all services you won’t be using while you’re away from home this summer such as phone and internet. Keep major utilities on like water of course. Talk with your Tucson property management company or landlord to see what services can be put on hold in your absence.

Regardless of how or where you choose to enjoy your Arizona summer,remember to take measures to “summer-ize” your home so you can enjoy the season without worry. And if you’re looking for someone to manage your home while you’re away this summer, contact Simply Property Management-Paielli Realty, Inc. for the most comprehensive Tucson property management services in the Valley of the Sun. -Greg
