  2. Use colors you love
  3. Decide if you want your home to be a place that energizes you or a place of relaxation
  4. Choose one color for doors and trim and carry it throughout the house. (standard shades of whites and creams are most common however if you are looking for a dramatic look think black, dark grey or chocolate brown)

Clean The Gutters

Dirty and clogged gutters can lead to big problems.

Poor drainage can cause damage to any number of areas in and around your home, even the home foundation. Piles of leaves rotting in the gutters attract pests. The weight of debris can eventually separate the gutters from the home.

Clean your gutters! Twice a year and after major storms.

The City of Palm Coast also maintains some resources for you, including a disaster preparedness guide focused on the local area:

Maintain Your Air Conditioner

Many people move to Florida for the warm climate and great weather. While the Florida climate is pleasant most of the year, the summers can be hard on your air conditioner.

Taking a pro-active approach to maintaining your air conditioner can save you money and hassle over the long term. A poorly maintained air conditioner will cost you more in power bills and repair costs.

The best way to ensure your AC keeps your family cool all summer is to buy a service plan from a reputable HVAC company. Many companies offer service plans. Prices range from $100-$200/year for an annual agreement that typically includes a tune-up or two as well as discounted labor rates if and when your AC needs a repair.

Don’t take risks with your family’s comfort! Put some fore-thought into maintaining your AC.
