Get Your Home Fall Ready!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The leaves are changing and the weather’s getting chillier. That can only mean one thing; fall is here!

In order to get in the spirit of the season and prepare for cooler weather, we’ve compiled a list of fall prep must dos. Check off each of our home ready tips, and you’ll be sipping a pumpkin spice latte snuggled by your fire place in no time!

1. Get Cozy

Blankets make life more comfy. Pull out your down comforters and fluffy blankets and get your bed ready to go for the cold nights ahead.

2. Clean Things Up

Who says deep cleaning your home is an activity just for spring. Fall cleaning can help get your house prepped and decluttered for cooler weather. Make sure there’s no clutter stored near heaters, furnaces or other heating appliances.

3. Let There be Fire

You may want to hire a chimney sweep to get your fireplace in tip top shape for the cold weather season. Unfortunately, fires are more likely during the fall and winter. Keep your home and family safe by taking necessary safety precautions with your chimney and fireplace.

4. Fill in the Gaps

Make sure all gaps around windows and doors are sealed up. Weather-stripping and caulk can help, so that your home stays insulated and warm during the cold months ahead; don’t make your furnace work harder than it has to.

5. Perform an Appliance Checkup

As temperature drop, it’s important to be able to keep your home warm and comfortable. Check your boiler or furnace and replace filters. Also, test your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide devices. Safety is key!
