Easy tips to prepare the inside and outside of your home for fall
Test Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors:
Replace the batteries in all smoke and carbon monoxide devices, and test them to make sure that they are working.
Walk Around Your House and Do A Roof Check:
You should be able to get a good look from the ground. If possible use a ladder to get a closer look, if you see any damaged shingles.
Check Windows and Doors for Any Drafts:
Inspect every window and door to see if there are any drafts. If you notice any drafts, call your local contractor to replace any seals or to apply caulking.
Inspect The Siding Around Your Home:
Walk around your home and look for any siding that may be cracked or loose. You can hire a professional to repair anything that is broken.
Get Your Furnace Inspected:
Call an HVAC professional to test for leaks, check heating efficiency, and to change the filter. They can also do a carbon monoxide check to ensure air safety. It’s also a good idea to stock up on extra air filters and change them every few months.
Bring Flowers Inside:
There are different varieties of flowers that can’t thrive with the cooler temperatures. Bring them in, and place them in an area of your home that gets plenty of sunlight.
Buy some corn stalks, pumpkins, and wreaths from your local garden store to add a cozy feel to your home.
