It seems like only yesterday you were planning your Memorial Day cookout to kick off the summer and now here you are doing the same thing for Labor Day to in the summer. Hopefully, you made the most of your lazy days of summer. Now it’s time to get the home ready for fall. Here are some of the things you should take care of before things get too cool outside:
Get Your Furnace Inspected
Last thing you want to do is go to turn on your heat only to have the furnace conk out. Chances are you didn’t turn that furnace on for the last for five months. If you skipped last year’s inspection, then you definitely want to get your furnace service before you use it. That means bringing in a professional to give it the once over. You might also want to stock up on extra air filters to change in the coming months.
Winterize Your AC
That same HVAC technician who will be looking over your furnace should be able to winterize your air-conditioning unit. It’s important that you keep it covered in the rain and snow. It should also be drained so that no moisture can grow into a mold.
Check Home Safety Devices
Fall is the time to swap out the batteries in your smoke detectors. If you have not installed a carbon monoxide monitor, then this is a good time to do that as well.
Check the Roof and Green Gutters
The only real time you can see if your roof is leaking is when it’s raining. But you might be able to text some damage such as torn shingles or some type of infestation. It’s a good idea to inspect your roof this fall by walking around the entire house. It might even help to break out the binoculars. If you going up in the latter then you definitely need to clean out the gutters. You do not want water to overflow and back up into your house.
Toss Out All the Rubbish
Fall is a good time to get organized for the coming holiday season. First thing you’ll be pulling out of the hollowing decorations. But if they are surrounded by clutter and rubbish in your garage, then it’s time to bring in the pros from Junk King Seattle.
