Fall Maintenance Items to Tackle

September 24, 2019 | Blog

fall maintenanceWith summer on its way out and winter slowly beckoning, fall is the ideal time to get your home in shape. Unlike summer, fall’s moderate climate makes it easy for you to handle whatever repairs and maintenance projects you had in mind. Here is a fall maintenance checklist to get you started.

1. Work on Your Landscape

If you have a compound full of trees and flowers, fall is the ideal time to ensure they’re in good shape before the snow starts falling. Cut out dead branches from your trees, trim your homestead flowers and mow your lawn. Also, inspect your trees and flowers for any signs of diseases so you can find a solution. Also, since this is the time when most plants shed, rake out the leaves so your compound can look neat and cozy.

2. Inspect your HVAC System

Winter means more time spent indoors with your heating system on full time. Fall itself is also usually unpredictable, which means you’ll also use your HVAC system every once in a while. That said, ensuring your HVAC system is in perfect condition is of the essence.

Start by inspecting the filters. Ensure you clean them as dirty air tends to wear out your HVAC system and makes it less efficient. Also, have an HVAC professional check it out for optimal performance during fall and winter.

3. Clean Out Your Gutter

During fall, most leaves and dirt debris usually end up in your gutters and downspouts. Thus once you’re done with raking the leaves on the ground, your next stop should be here. Clean them out as clogged gutters and downspouts cause roof damage when it rains.

4. Seal Cracks and Gaps

Cracks and gaps will cause your energy bill to skyrocket as cold seeps in forcing your HVAC system to work overtime. Also, these gaps open up your home to mice and other rodents. Thus ensure you inspect your attic and walls for any cracks and gaps.

Other Tasks to Include in Your Fall Checklist

  • Arrange a chimney cleaning
  • Deep clean the kitchen
  • Double-check your safety devices, for instance, smoke detectors and alarm system

Besides the above, there’re many home maintenance projects that you could indulge in to make your home pleasant during fall and winter. Check us out for fall and HVAC maintenance tips.
