Gone are the hot days of summer, and here instead are crisp fall mornings and breezy autumn afternoons. Winter may still seem far on the horizon, but now is the perfect time to start preparing your home for the snow and cold to come.
Here are some things to do now to prepare your home for winter.
Inspect the Roof
Clean Your Gutters
Turn Off Outside Water
Prep Your Lawn Mower
Seal Out the Cold Air
Prevent expensive air leaks by taking some time to search out areas in need of weather stripping, caulking, or insulation. Pull back your attic insulation to find and seal cutouts in the drywall, or even consider adding or replacing existing insulation.
Install a Programmable Thermostat
Have Your Furnace Serviced
Save yourself a long wait for repairs during winter time by having your furnace looked at now. A servicer can make sure your system is clean and in good repair and achieves manufacturer-rated efficiency. You’ll also want to make sure you replace your air filters monthly to keep it running smoothly.
