Most of us would never treat our bodies the way we treat our homes.
For good reason. If we did, we would not be around very long.
It’s easy to see and feel the neglect to our human bodies when we choose to eat poorly and never exercise. Our systems work much harder to perform the same tasks as our fellow humans that get moderate exercise and eat well. Over time, this strain causes our bodies to suffer and fail early.
A house responds like a human body.
Unfortunately, many of us unintentionally neglect our most important and expensive asset. Our homes.
We neglect our refrigerators and dishwashers. We neglect our heating and cooling systems, our plumbing, garage doors, emergency systems, foundations, gutters, hose bibbs, washers & dryers, garbage disposals, coffee makers, drains, faucets and on and on.
Unintentionally because – unlike human fitness and nutrition, there is little in the way of information and support.
Because many of the manufacturers of “things” don’t want us to know. They want us to buy more “things” instead of maintaining the items we have. They give little guidance, if any, on how to keep them functioning well.
“ Because many of the manufacturers of “things” don’t want us to know.”
Additionally, often the BIG repair service companies (HVAC, plumbing, electrical etc.) would rather items fail unexpectedly so that you are forced to pay big dollars to replace them immediately.
It DOES NOT have to be this way.
Our homes, while complex, respond well to preventative maintenance. Especially routine preventative maintenance.
…the act of cleaning your refrigerator coils keeps the temperature down inside the compressor thus increasing its operating efficiency and significantly increasing its lifespan.
Sediment causes corrosion and consequently significantly reduces the usable life of your water heater all while causing it to consume much more energy.
The regular removal of sediment increases efficiency and increases the life of your water heater.
Or lubricating your garage door.
Or replacing HVAC filters in a timely manner.
The list of items that benefit greatly from regular preventative maintenance is big and getting bigger.
ShelterHub™ is being created from the ground up to help homeowners reduce their energy cost, increase the longevity of their systems and appliances and reduce their CO2 output.
With ShelterHub, preventative maintenance is performed on a monthly basis by a trained and Certified ShelterHub Home Technician™. He or she will perform a rotating checklist of items at every visit to ensure that ALL items are maintained at a predetermined period.
Monthly “eyes-on, hands-on” within your home helps you to keep your home running smoothly and efficiently. Not to mention, the peace of mind you get from knowing things are getting looked at regularly.
Additionally, your ShelterHub Home Technician™ will provide a monthly report to keep you informed about what’s going on in your home.
In short, when we maintain our things (our vehicles, our electronics, our homes etc.) they consume less energy and last much longer. Think years or even decades.
With ShelterHub™, home maintenance just got a whole lot easier, less expensive and a lot more thorough.
ShelterHub™…it really is that simple!
