Publisher description for TBS Home Maintenance
You start by setting up all of the items that you want to track maintenance and expenses information on. For example, the water heater, furnace, air conditioning unit. You can set up multiple maintenance activities for each item. For example, your furnace needs to have a filter replaced every 30 days, and a annual inspection. You can also set up inspection activities for all the systems in your house, not just the mechanicals. Next, you define the maintenance activities that need to be performed for each of the items you set up above. In the screen below, the Day Interval is the number of days between performing the maintenance operation. For example, if you were setting up a maintenance activity to replace the furnace filter every 30 days, you would put 30 in the days interval field. Once you have performed the maintenance activity, you can enter information about it into the History file. This file keep tracks of all the maintenance operations you perform. The options under Type of Work are: Scheduled: This was a scheduled maintenance operation Repair: This was a emergency, or non-scheduled repair. Upgrade: This is an enhancement to an existing item. Use the summary cost report to see if it is time to replace an item that you are spending a lot of money to maintain. For example, if the summary cost report says that the water heater cost 375.00, and you have spent 600.00 in maintenance, perhaps it is time to replace the unit rather than spending more on maintenance.
