Don’t Fret, Follow These 5 Home Maintenance Tips To Get Ready for Halloween

Halloween is approaching, and you know what that means: cold weather! The fall temperatures can take a toll on your home, so follow these 5 home maintenance tips to ensure your home withstands the chilly weather.

1. Examine Your Doors and Windows for Drafts

Avoid extra costs from lost air by adding extra drapery around these areas and investing in necessary glass repair. At Glass Express, we are experts at installing insulated glass that will save you a scary amount of money in electric bills in the long run.

 

 

 

2. Replace Your Air Filters

Changing your home’s air and/or furnace filter will create a more efficient filter that will heat your home faster. Another tip that will help keep the warm air flowing, is changing the direction of your ceiling fans to move clockwise. That pushes the heat down.

3. Check Your Pipes

As the air outside gets colder, the water inside your pipes could begin to freeze. This could eventually lead to burst pipes. Prevent broken pipes by draining your outdoor faucets and providing extra installation to those inside your home exposed to cold weather.

4. Take a look at Your Home’s Roof and Gutters

Remove any elements found in your gutters, such as leaves, rocks and dirt. This will help melted snow flow properly during the cold months and prevent leakage into your home.

5. Get Your Fireplace Ready

There’s nothing better than sitting by a nice warm fire in the cold months. Make sure your fireplace is prepared and cleaned out before your first fire to ensure air can flow through properly. If needed, hire a chimney sweeper.
