9/12/2016 (Permalink)

It’s been a wonderful summer with a historically hot August and we are sad to see it end.  September 22nd marks the first day of autumn!   In anticipation of the fall season here are some preparations to get your home ready for the season:

  • Clean your gutters-before the weather changes be sure to clean you gutters to prevent water and debris build up
  • Test your sub pump-sub pumps frequently malfunction and can cause extensive damage, test your sub pump and have it serviced regularly
  • Have vents and chimney’s cleaned-nests, beehives, an other debris can enter vents and chimneys, reducing efficiency, inspect these areas and combat any potential issues
  • Inspect furnace- before the cold weather arrives inspect your furnace, be mindful of any weird noises, inspect the hoses, and clean or replace dirty filters
  • Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors- using weather-stripping and caulk seal gaps and cracks to eliminate drafts and reduce heating bills
  • Clean ducts-regular maintenance of your duct system allows for cleaner and healthier air quality in your home
  • Power wash your home-fall is a great time to power wash the exterior of your home
  • Inspect roof-roof damage can create huge issues for homeowners, thoroughly inspect your roof for cracks, leaks, damaged or missing shingles to avoid bigger issues later
  • Appliance maintenance-inspect your appliances, change hoses as necessary to prevent water damage
  • Clean leaves around water beds-reduce debris build up by cleaning the area around water beds
