As the seasons change, so does the way a home is used. While this is especially noticeable with things like turning on a heating system or putting out the patio furniture, you may be surprised to learn that even the integrated systems of your property can be significantly impacted by the way your family or tenants use them during different seasons.
As an example, think about how your plumbing system is used differently in summer. If your family is around the house more often during the summer, they’re likely taking more showers, washing their hands, brushing their teeth, or washing the dishes more than they have been in previous months. Alternatively, if you’re away for an extended vacation during the summer, the systems in your home may be seeing less than typical use. Your water heater, for example, could be turned off if it’s not being used at all while you’re away.
