Exercise with the appliance's supply valves and inspect A portable generator can provide you with a lifesaver in the event of a power outage. Turn it on every three months and have it repaired twice a year (even if you never use it). Keep fuel and engine oil handy in case of a storm. Do not allow fuel to remain in the tank for long periods of time, as this could damage it.

Check regularly for corrosion and wear. Buying a home is an important life event, but owning a home is much more than closing a sale and moving to a new address. Maintaining your home requires a lot of work and diligence, and having an annual schedule is a great way to make sure you keep your investment in good shape.
