Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold, Time to Weatherize

Fall is here!  With changing leaves and pumpkin spice in the air, Winter is right around the corner.

 Is your home ready?  Check out these Tips for Fall Maintenance.

Mold Inspection – Mold issues can arise during the fall and winter, due in part to condensation on walls and windows within our homes.  Eliminate mold HVAC risk, improve your family’s health and have a peace of mind with an inspection.

Weatherize Windows and Doors – Use weather stripping and caulk to seal out drafts.  Not only can this lower heating bills, it can also help keep insects and other “critters” out.

Inspect Your Roof – Be proactive and prevent expensive emergency repairs.  Look for trouble spots and learn how to locate a leak from inside.

Check Your Insulation – Adding insulation is one of the most important and beneficial ways to prepare your home for winter.  The potential money and energy savings make it well worth the effort.

Inspect and Clean your Gutters – Cleaning your gutters at least twice a year will result in better protection of your roof, your walls and foundation of your home.

Adjust the Temperature – Setting your thermostat as low as comfortable when you are home and turning the temperature up while you’re away can help save money.  A programmable thermostat can make it easy to set your temperature.

Tune Up your Heating System – Cleaning and servicing now can help save you money later.  Remember to check your furnace filter and replace it as necessary.
