Now is a perfect time for fall home maintenance. Taking a weekend, or two, to winterize your home is a great way to insure that your home is ready for winter weather. Here are a few items to add to your ‘to-do’ list before snow starts to fall.
Fall Home Maintenance Tips
- Clean and inspect your gutters. Make sure your gutters are free of any debris and are in good working order.
- Leaking windows and doors. The ‘flame test’ is still a great way to see if you’re losing heat. Carefully hold a lit candle along your windows and exterior door. A flickering flame may be a sign that the seal is failing.
- Install a storm door. If you don’t have a storm door installed year round now would be the time to do it. Installation will be more challenging when the temperature falls.
