It’s time to get your home ready for fall
Fall is creeping closer and closer. Falling leaves. Football season. Allergies. There are a host of both good and bad things that happen during the fall. So, it’s important that you take these last few weeks to get yourself (and your home) ready for this chillier season.
During the fall, you’ll have to deal with falling leaves and a host of other issues that can really bog down your home and your heating and cooling season. That’s why it is important to start with a clean slate. Many of these tasks have to do with your air conditioner, which may not make too much sense. But remember, your air conditioner is most likely going to be sitting unused for months. It’s better to have dealt with any problems BEFORE you have to kick it on again.
Here are a list of things you want to give attention to before the weather gets too chilly.
- Clean your gutters
- Seal any air leaks around your windows and doors (or in your attic).
- Invest in weather stripping.
- Change your furnace filter.
- Have your ductwork cleaned by a professional.
- Get your air conditioner cleaned by a professional.
Cross these items off before the weather gets too chilly, and you won’t regret it.
Remember, if you are having your air conditioner cleaned before you put it up for the season, always call an HVAC professional.
