As the season begins to change, it’s time to prep your home for falling leaves, cooler weather and the cold, brisk air of an autumn nigh returns to our lives. With fall comes colder and less predictable weather. The kind of conditions that can cause structural damage to your home or if you’re not careful. But do not worry, you can enjoy everything you love about autumn worry free. Most of the tasks listed below are well within the average homeowner’s ability. But even if you’d rather hire professional to handle them, it can be well worth the expense. You’ll save money in the long run by preventing costly damage to your home.

  1. Clean your gutters

For starters, cleaning out your gutter is a great way to start your fall preparations. You don’t want any more fallen leaves and debris to clog up your gutters, which can cause external water damage to your roof or internal leaking.

  1. Seal up air leaks

A home with air leaks around windows and doors is like a coat left unbuttoned. Gaps in caulk and weather stripping let cold air into your warm home and sealing up a drafty house can save to 20 percent on heating bills.

  1. Install a programmable thermostat

Installing a programmable thermostat is both affordable and easy to do on your own. Control your home’s heating and cooling while you’re on the go with a programmable thermostat. Set the temperature in each room with just a tap on your smartphone.

  1. Inspect your furnace

A furnace filter collects dust and over time, it needs to be cleaned. Most can be vacuumed, but if it’s a disposable filter, you might need to replace it after one or two cleans.

  1. Inspect your roof

Few homeowner problems are more vexing than a leaky roof. Once the dripping starts, finding the source of the problem can be tome consuming. Stop problems this fall before winter winds turn them from annoyances into disasters.

  1. Ward off gas problems

Keeping a gas heater in good shape is both a safety and a cost issue. An improperly maintained heater can spew toxic gasses into the air of your home, or it could simply be costing you more to operate. Have a professional check these devices annually.

Make sure that your home is prepared for the fall season. Preventative maintenance now will save money on expensive emergency repairs and wasted energy costs. For professional cleaning services, please call us SERVPRO of Ventura at (805) 656-3911.
