Home Maintenance Checklist
Do you have a fall checklist? Make sure these items are on your list so you know your home is ready for winter.
Gutter Cleaning: Gutter cleaning needs to be done on a regular basis so your roof doesn’t pay the consequences. A clean gutter lets the rain and melted snow drain freely so you don’t have to worry about any buildup that can help create ice dams.
Tree Pruning: Without proper tree pruning, the winter months can be devastating to trees that would otherwise be healthy. If you aren’t an expert in this field, it’s best to hire someone who is experienced. Otherwise, you could make the situation much worse.
Window Washing: Instead of letting everything build up until spring, it’s a good idea to do your window washing before the seasons change. You’ll enjoy fall more, but you’ll also find that your home is more cheerful when you’re stuck inside over the winter.
Winterizing the Home
There are several things that need to be done to make your home more energy efficient so you can keep it warm and cozy during the winter months.
One of the most important things is to have a furnace inspection completed. A furnace inspection will ensure that your furnace is in good repair, free of leaks, with a new filter put in place.
Seal up your house by weather stripping windows and doors. Weather stripping windows and doors minimize the drafts that can make your heating bills go through the roof, or out the window as it were. You might also consider adding insulation in the attic and inspecting the house for any leaks or openings.
