Home Maintenance Tips for Fall and Winter

The cold season has already arrived in many parts of the country. Here in Weston, Florida, the best season of the year is approaching, which for many can still be summer (60 degrees 70 degrees) for us is winter.

It’s important to prepare your home for the colder weather coming. Taking a little bit of time to winterize your home can save you a lot of time, and money, later on.

Check out these tips for preparing your home for the fall and winter.

1. Check window and door weather stripping for damage.

2. Disconnect water hoses and turn off outdoor water supply lines and irrigation system. (Not in South Florida 🤪)

3. Wrap exterior water pipes or hose bibs with heating tape. (Not in South Florida 🤪)

4. Clean your gutters.

5. Check your roof for damage or leaks.

6. Fill cracks in your driveway and foundation.

7. Check attic insulation for pest damage.

8. Have your furnace serviced.

9. Check your chimney for obstructions and make sure your damper is working.

10. Clean and store your lawnmower.

11. Aerate and fertilize your lawn.

12. Change the air filters in your HVAC system.

13. Change smoke detector batteries.

14. Clean and store outdoor furniture.

15. Have landscaping pruned and put fresh mulch down.

16. Bring potted plants inside.

17. Change your ceiling fan direction.

18. Clean humidifiers before using.

19. Check the condition of your pool cover.

20. Make sure snow equipment is working. (Not in South Florida 🤪)

If you are in an area that doesn’t get snow, is the best time to repair and maintain those things that during the warmer months may fail, at the same time it can be less expensive and easy to repair now. for example:

✔️ Have your house painted (lower humidity)

✔️ Have roof or screen enclosure repairs done

REMEMBER

services aren’t as busy as spring and summer
