Tune Up Your HVAC System: Climate Makers, a Virginia Beach HVAC contractor, suggests a 40 point spring HVAC tune up and check up. Included on their list is measuring operating pressures, checking controls, and cleaning condenser coils. It's also a good idea to install animal-proof vent closures on your outdoor vents to prevent animals, like mice, from entering your house through your vents.

Inspect and Repair Your Deck: Read our guide to how to clean a deck for detailed instructions. Also read our guide to preparing your deck for summer.

Assorted Other Spring Maintenance Projects: The sky is the limit when it comes to maintaining your house, but here are a few other tasks that it makes sense to do in the spring: Check window screens for rips; clean storm windows and screens; replace storm windows with window screens; sweep and dust your screened-in porch; uncover, clean, and repair outdoor furniture; turn the compost; inspect exterior paint for peeling spot or bubbles; touch up exterior paint; install awnings to shade your house from summer sun; prune hedges and pull weeds; tune up the lawnmower; mow the lawn; and don't forget the spring cleaning.
