Colder weather is coming!! Whether you are ready or not, it is a good idea to check these fall home maintenance items off your checklist to prepare for the winter season ahead.

  • Clean gutters and downspouts to prevent buildup of leaves and debris. If neglected, this can often cause infestations, rot, and ruined gutters. Pro-tip: A plumber’s snake is a great tool for pulling clumps of wet leaves out of clogged downspouts.

  • Change summer screens to cool weather windows and doors.

  • Ensure pipes are well insulated.

  • Check smoke and CO detectors.

  • Winterize your sprinkler system.

  • Inspect and repair any loose windows to save on heating bills over the winter months.

  • Replace the filter in your furnace.

  • Have a heating and cooling professional check your systems to ensure they are in good condition.

  • Clean your chimney flue.

  • Winterize your gas grill. In addition to giving it a good cleaning, be sure to shut off the gas, unfasten the burner, and store in a safe place.

  • Get your property ready for snow! Remove any rocks, extension cords, or hoses and mark your driveway for easy snow removal.
