You can almost feel the evening nip in the air. The days are beginning to get shorter, evenings cooler, and leaves slowly starting to turn. As our thoughts turn to fall festivities and autumn colors, so should our plans for preparing our homes for cold winter months.
- Clean and stow your mower
- Remove garden hoses from faucets
- Drain your sprinkler system
- Seal air leaks with color matched exterior caulk
- Remove debris from gutters
- Safely check your roof for damaged shingles, black algae stains, and vent flashing
- Have your furnace and fireplace serviced so you’re ready for the first cold night
- Purchase a supply of appropriately sized furnace filters and plan to change on a monthly basis
- Check your smoke detectors and replace batteries
- Trim plants and trees and remove leaves and debris from your yard and around your home
With your home maintenance in order, you can now focus your efforts on how to have fun. For this, we suggest checking out Peebles Homes on Pinterest where we’ve been busy building our fall boards including Autumn Celebrations at Home, National Chili Day, and Tailgating at Home!
