10 Ways To Get Your Home Ready For Fall

10 Ways To Get Your Home Ready For Fall

It is that time of year when the kids are going back to school, some are going off to college, and people are thinking of pumpkin flavored drinks and snacks! There are also things you need to do for your home to prepare for fall. Here are 10 ways to get your home ready for fall. 

1.  Clean your gutters

Things collect in your gutters throughout the year. You may even notice some new plants sprouted up over the summer. Clean them out now before all of the fall colors land in there too! Installing a gutter guard will also help keep them clean.

2.  Wash the windows

Washing your windows before cooler weather hits is a great idea! Do them inside and out and then you won’t have to worry about the outside until spring!

3.  Check your chimney 

The weather doesn’t get too cold here, but if you have a chimney, have it inspected so if you want to use it, you can! 

4.  Do roof maintenance

If you have never had your roof checked, now is the time. Hire somebody to inspect it and maybe even give it a little “tune-up.”

5.  Check for drafts

Go around your home and see if any air is coming in through your windows or doors. If so, taking care of the problem now can save you a lot of money on heating and cooling. 

6.  Do your yard work

Go out to your yard and trim your bushes, check trees for any branches that could fall off, and make sure everything is ready for cooler weather. If you love having a garden, go to the local nursery and pick out some great fall plants for your yard! If you want beautiful plants for spring, now is the time to plant some bulbs too!

7.  Organize the shed

You won’t need a lot of your summer equipment for a few months, so organize your shed so you can access season appropriate items easily.

8.  Bring in plants

If you have temperature sensitive plants, bring them inside for the winter. 

9.  Have your HVAC inspected

At least once a year, having your HVAC inspected can save you money. Remember to change your filters frequently.

10.  Clean humidifiers

If you use humidifiers, make sure they are clean and ready for use before they are needed. This way, if you need to replace them, you are ready. 

Now that you are ready for fall, who’s ready for Christmas? It is always a good season to buy or sell a home! You can call me, Drew Spears, at any time at (817) 807-5195. You can also visit my website to see homes that are currently available.
