Home Maintenance for the Fall Season

Caulking is one of those constant maintenance items that needs to be refreshed everyone to two years. Caulking in the fall will insure the doors and windows have a fresh seal keeping the heat where it belongs, inside the home.

Home Maintenance for the Fall Season

Fall is officially upon us! As we settle into our post summer routines, back to school, the start of football and a (hopefully) cooler weather pattern, it is important to prepare your home for the coming months.

 

There are a few maintenance items we suggest handling before winter slaps us with her cold hand:

  • Inspect the heating system
  • Caulking windows and doors
  • Verify proper insulation

 

It is important to inspect the heating elements in the fall season before the first winter breeze. You want to make sure the elements are heating properly before your system has the chance to leave you out in the cold!

 

Caulking is one of those constant maintenance items that needs to be refreshed everyone to two years. Caulking in the fall will insure the doors and windows have a fresh seal keeping the heat where it belongs, inside the home.

 

Checking your homes insulation in the fall will allow you some time to address the situation if it does seem low. A quick check of insulation levels can be done from a quick observation. If the insulation is below or at the same level as the joists for the ceiling below, you most likely need to have some insulation added.

 

If you are unsure or unable to confirm that your home is winter ready, give GreenWorks a call, we would be happy to assist in your winterization verification.
