Routine home maintenance is the key to prevent small problems from turning into large, more expensive repairs. Maintenance also ensures the proper operation and optimal performance of the main mechanical systems of the home. This course is designed to help the homeowner create a personal Monthly Home Maintenance Checklist and to identify essential equipment for a toolkit. Step-by-step, in-class demonstrations will offer the student hands-on experience as to how to undertake these tasks. Topics include, but are not limited to, the proper cleaning and replacement of air-conditioner filters, how to flush the air conditioner drain line to prevent clogs, hot water heater maintenance (i.e., drain the tank to remove calcium build-up), repairing a leaky faucet or toilet and weatherizing doors and windows. Safety guidelines will be presented throughout the course and will include basic hand and power tool safety and electrical panel safety. Lab Fee required.
