Frequently Asked Questions
How does Homebuddy determine my maintenance schedule?
We determine your maintenance schedule based on the information you share about your home. For instance, if you tell us you have a central AC unit we recommend you that service it once a year.
Can I edit my maintenance schedule?
Yes you can! Click the "Schedule" link while viewing your home to see your annual schedule, edit task months due, edit frequencies, and add and delete new tasks.
Why do you ask for home addresses?
Eventually we intend to pull public record data about your home to build a better maintenance schedule. We're asking for it now so we don't have to have people go back to add it in as features are launched.
You ask about pets, kids, and allergies—why?
We do this to recommend a better air filter schedule. If you have young children or allergies we advise that you change your air filter more frequently as young children and folks with allergies are more sensitive to impurities in the air. Similarly, if you have pets we recommend you change your filters more frequently as pet dander tends to make your filters clog more quickly.
Does Homebuddy sell my data?
We also don't sell your data (and won't, ever).
How does Homebuddy make money?
At some point in the future we'll figure out something&mdashprobably offerring referrals to high quality providers. But for right now we're focused on creating the best product we can for homeowners like ourselves.
How do I get in touch with the Homebuddy team with problems, questions, feedback, or requests?
