3 Ways to Spruce Up Your Manufactured Home for Summer

Get your manufactured home ready for summerA few tips to make your home ready for the long hot summer without breaking the bank.

Summer is here and that means it is the perfect time to spruce up your manufactured home. Manufactured homes are unique in that you have many creative options to make it your own. Palm Harbor Homes offers many different floor plans to suit your family’s needs and space requirements. Just like any home, manufactured homes need regular maintenance. A little sprucing up keeps your home looking great and has the potential to save you money every month!

Check Your AC System

Before you set your air conditioning system on blast, do a thorough inspection of the unit. If you see anything leaking or out of place, call a professional HVAC service to do an inspection and repair. An AC unit with a leak can end up costing you big bucks due to poor cooling efficiency. Palm Harbor Homes offers several different energy efficient packages that can cut down your summer electric bill. Our green building options like ENERGY STAR® and EnerGmiser® offer you a great way to spruce up your manufactured home and pay for themselves over time.

Fill in The Cracks

During the winter, water can seep into any cracks or crevasses and then freeze during cold weather spells. The water expansion can create bigger cracks that can eventually lead to leaks. Every season you should perform a walk through of your manufactured home to ensure any cracks around your house or on the roof are patched and filled in. This will help prevent leaks during summer thunderstorms.

Treat Yourself

Many of our Palm Harbor’s homes have gorgeous spacious porches, perfect for sitting and sipping iced tea during those long summer days. Treat yourself to some new outdoor furniture this summer. Splurge on a new rocking chair or hammock to add a charming and relaxing touch to your manufactured home.
