Spring will be turning into summer faster than we realize,
but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the little bit of it that’s left. When
spending so much time indoors lately, this means ensuring the air you breath
keeps you healthy and comfortable.
The Maynard Man has some tips to share with you below to
ensure this is the case.
Poor indoor air quality, no matter the time of year or
current circumstances, is a significant health concern. In addition to the risk
of virus transmission, pollutants like pollen, dust, and smoke can get trapped
in your home. This causes allergies and asthma symptoms to flare up, and can
even make a healthy person ill.
Long-term exposure to poor indoor air quality can even
produce chronic symptoms like fatigue, headaches, brain fog, and respiratory
irritation. If you’re not already thinking about how you can improve your
indoor air quality, now is the time to consider this!

With temperatures still in the mild range and other pressing
matters on our minds, it may seem strange to see a blog post about air
conditioners. Still though, summer will be here before we know it. You deserve

cooling system in disrepair, managing these needs now will save you both time and money later.
The Maynard Man often gets asked how to tell if an air
conditioner needs replacement. After all, sometimes it can get by with another
repair. The short answer to this question is, “it depends.” It truly does
depend, on a number of factors. Read below as The Maynard Man outlines some
questions to ask yourself to determine what your next best step might be.

As easy as it is to blame power surges on storms, the fact
is that storms are only a small part of the problem. Power surges occur when
there is an increased demand for energy and it causes a sudden spike in the
flow of electricity. This spike can destroy electrical circuitry throughout

Storm season plays a role, but power surges can occur from
something seemingly benign, like your powerful furnace cycling on. The Maynard
Man is here to tell you about the risks these power surges bring to your home!

One of the most insidious household problems you may ever
deal with is that of a plumbing leak. We say this because plumbing leaks are
often hidden at first, slowly creating a pool of water or dampening drywall and
flooring, which leads to severe property damage and even mold growth.
It’s a problem that’s often costly, always inconvenient, and
in worse case scenarios unhealthy. Fortunately, you have The Maynard Man on
your side to help resolve your plumbing woes. What if you could stop them

through each season as comfortably and healthfully as possible. One piece of

flooding. So what tips can you follow to avoid this messy and inconvenient
