Prepare Your Home for Fall

By in Beth's Blog with 0 Comments

After a long, hot summer, it’s time to prepare your home for fall! With the autumn months around the corner, here are some things you can do to get your home ready for the change in seasons.

Clear out gutters – To prevent clogs, be sure to remove leaves and other debris from your drainpipes and gutters.

Seal air leaks – Check your home for drafts that may occur due to cracks around windows or doors. Use a calking material to fix cracks in stationary house components such as doorframes and weather stripping.

Check your furnace – Sediment buildup can cause your system to work less efficiently or potentially become a fire hazard. Have your furnace inspected annually to reduce the risks.

Examine your air ducts – Properly seal and insulate air ducts to make sure they are working to their fullest potential. This simple step can keep you from losing 20% of the air that moves through the duct system.

Prepare the water heater – Drain the water heater to clear out any debris that has collected in the bottom of the tank.

If you have any questions about how to prepare your home for fall, please give me a call at 214-769-2947. I’d love to talk with you about any of your real estate questions.
