Fall Maintenance Tasks to Prepare for Winter

Who doesn’t love siting in the comforts of you home while it’s cold outdoors and you’re warm and toasty indoors. Nothing spells comfort like drinking some hot choco, watching something good on Netflix and cuddling up with someone you love on a chilly evening. What could possible go wrong?

Well, a lot of things, if you haven’t done the home maintenance tasks you should have in the fall and prepared you home for winter. It’s best to get a head start and take necessary measures to make sure you keep the cold at bay.

The first task would involve making sure you keep drafts out. According to Vision Mechanical, “It is important to do an audit of the doors and windows in the home and install caulking and stripping as needed; this will keep the cold from coming in.”

The next step would be to have your trusty furnace checked. “During the fall, check your water heater periodically to make sure that there are no leaks. You should also make sure that there is no rusty water. Take note of the year when your heater was manufactured.”
