How to Prepare Your Home for Fall

With summer a fading memory now’s the time to ready your home for fall cooler temperatures and unpredictable weather conditions.

  1. Clear Out the Gutters.
  2. Clean the Fireplace and Chimney.
  3. Get Your HVAC Serviced
  4. Store Air Conditioners.
  5. Check for Drafts.
  6. Put Up Storm Windows.
  7. Ready the Water Heater.
  8. Turn Off Outdoor Plumbing
  9. Fix Cracks in Concrete and Asphalt
  10. Start Composting
  11. Clean Outdoor Furniture and Gardening Tools
  12. Plant Bulbs for Spring-Blooming Flowers
  13. Get Your Ice Melt And Snow Blower Ready
  14. Perform a Home safety Check (Replace the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide monitors. We recommend checking this every time you change the clock for daylight saving time)

Preparing your home for fall is not tricky, just time-consuming. Putting it off causes problems that can wind up costing you an enormous amount of money, though, so set aside time on the next couple of weekends to get these jobs done.
