6 Homeowner Tips for the Fall

Get your home prepared for the cold months with these 6 tips:

Stopping air from seeping in from the windows and doors.

The best way to save money on energy bills from the heaters on full blast is to stop any airflow from the outside. This usually happens when windows, doors or even air conditioning units aren’t completely blocked off. Hanging insulated curtains is an option for your windows. Try door sweeps or weather strips to seal your doors.

Cleaning your air conditioning and heating units.

This promotes healthier air in your home. On average, this should be done twice a year: spring and fall. If you have the right equipment you can do this yourself.

Check your fireplace.

Look for damages and just make sure everything is in order. Also, test your fire alarms. The last thing you’d want to do on December 24th is to climb the chimney to do handy work.

Clean your water heater.

Make sure your water heaters are clean from any build-ups. You can drain the water to get rid of those build-ups. Consult a professional if needed.

Store away your hose.

Any garden hose left lying around are vulnerable to freezing and cracking. By simply remembering to store this away from open-air saves you money for a new one in the spring season.

Roof check!

Now that everything is taken care of downstairs, look up! Make sure there aren’t any missing shingles or holes. Also, remember to clear out the gutters!
