The leaves are changing, the air has a chill in it and we’re gearing up for Halloween. Fall is here and that means it’s time to get your home ready for winter! We’ve compiled a few tips to help you prepare the inside of your home for fall!
Check for Drafts
Drafts are the bane of all homeowners. They can lead to high energy bills, health problems, and annoying noise. But you might not know if you have drafts because they’re often hard to detect. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to check for drafts in your home: use a candle! If the flame flickers or goes out when it gets close to windows or other drafty spots, then that means there’s an opening allowing cold air inside your house. And that means money leaking away from your wallet each month on higher utility bills! Stop this leak by sealing up these cracks with some weather stripping today.
Have Your Furnace Inspected
In the winter, it is important to remember that your furnace should be inspected before usage. This will help you save on heating costs by making sure everything is in good working order. Contact us today to schedule your appointment for a professional furnace inspection and we’ll make sure your home stays nice and cozy this season!
Test Home Safety Devices
Many people have a false sense of security when it comes to their homes. They think that because they live in a nice, suburban neighborhood with good schools and close proximity to the city, that there is no chance for danger. But this couldn’t be further from the truth. Homeowners should not just rely on home insurance or homeowners associations to keep them safe, but also on more preventative measures like installing alarms or smoke detectors. There are many devices out there specifically designed to help protect your home against fires, intruders, natural disasters and other dangers so you can rest easy at night knowing your family will always be protected.
Purchase a Programmable Thermostat
A programmable thermostat is a great investment for every homeowner. Not only will you save money by lowering your energy bills, but it can also be programmed to automatically adjust the temperature in your home when you’re away. This means no more coming home to an ice cold house and leaving on the oven all day just so that your food doesn’t spoil! You’ll be able to set up custom heating and cooling schedules with ease and even modify them as necessary at any time of the year. We offer a selection of products from top manufacturers.

Clean Your Humidifiers
A clean humidifier is a must-have for homeowners. A dirty humidifier can be a breeding ground for bacteria, mold, or mildew to grow in the water basin area. In turn, this leads to an unhealthy environment within your home or office space. Simple vinegar is an excellent cleaning solution to get your humidifier clean and ready to keep running efficiently.
