As the summer wanes and we get ready for fall, getting your house ready should be a top priority.
Put away the summer furniture
Fall brings some serious weather issues and many times strong winds. Time to get the summer outdoor furniture cleaned up and stored away. If you have a pool, it’s time to add the chemicals and put on the cover to keep the leaves and debris out of the pool. Don’t forget to winterize your filter.
Turn off the outdoor faucets
With the cooler weather coming, its time to put away your outdoor hoses and turn off the outdoor faucets before any freezing happens.
Cover the gutters
If you haven’t put covers on your gutters, this is the time to think about it. You can have them installed, but you can also install them yourself as a DYI project.
Check your home for leaks
Before the cooler weather arrives, check your windows and doors for leaks. Drafts are a major cause of heat loss and making sure you add caulk or weatherstripping can save you money.
Change your batteries
Twice a year, you should change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Especially since you will be using your furnace and spending more time indoors, it is always better to be proactive on this front.
