Falling Into Better Home Habits

Hardwood floors installed in Alexandria, VA

Why wait for New Year’s resolutions when you can get a headstart with autumn? Fall is considered a fresh start for many people after a long summer. You can prepare your home for autumn by adopting some new habits that will protect your property, improve your comfort levels, and make sure everyone is happy and comfortable as the year comes to a close.

Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up

You may be the type of person who starts using the fireplace and turns on the heat at the first sight of a leaf dropping. To make sure that your home is always as cozy as can be, schedule an HVAC tune-up that will ensure your heater is thoroughly cleaned, prepped, and ready for a chilly fall day and a cold winter to come.

Check Your Outdoor Pipes

If your home has an irrigation system, fall is a great time to insulate your pipes and shut off any outdoor valves you won’t be using for the coming months. You can also check for leaks and make any essential repairs before winter hits and turns your water into ice that can lead to bursts.

Check Your Carbon Monoxide Detector

Protect your family against dangerous gas leaks by replacing the batteries in your carbon monoxide detector. You should also make sure it still works (when the new batteries are put inside) by holding down the test button. If alarms are interconnected, make sure that they are all sounding off together.

Check your detector’s instruction manual to ensure proper testing measures are followed.

Apply Weatherstripping

Prevent heat loss by weatherstripping your door and window frames. Believe it or not, this is a fall prep tip that is affordable and will help save money on your energy bills; a win-win situation!
