A Manual for Homeowners

If I were a realtor, home inspector, or other such home-oriented professional, I think I’d have to give my clients a gift. That gift would be a manual for their home. Sounds like a great idea, right? But how do you do that? Easy: the book’s already been published. It’s called How to Operate Your Home, written by Tom Feiza. Every homeowner should have one of these books.

As a homeowner who knows I understand way too little about how my house operates, this book is easy to understand. It has a lot of drawings, tells me how to tell which style equipment my house has, etc. The best part, in my opinion, is the seasonal list of home maintenance items. These include things most of us know we should do, such as regularly change furnace filters and smoke alarm batteries, but it also has a lot of things I didn’t know I need to do. I plan to treat this book like a to-do list to keep my house in tip-top shape. An ounce of preventative maintenance is worth a pound of expensive repairs (at inconvenient times)!
