5 Things you should do to get your home ready for Fall/Winter season!

1. Clean Gutters

Gutters are one part of your home that you don’t always think of when having to clean. But it is very important to do this especially at this time of year! Your gutter drains thousands of gallons of water from your roof and if not cleaned properly you could end up with a lot of interior and exterior damage. So, this is the perfect time to get those gutters clean before the brutal winter comes!

2. Change Your Filters

Another thing to always do before the cold season, is to change your filters! It is much harder to keep your home at a temperature that won’t make your heating bills go crazy if your filters are clogged! This should even be done monthly but can get away with it before Fall rolls around. 

3. Fertilize & Cut Lawn

What a sad event this will be…cutting the lawn for the last time  this definitely means the end of the warm season has ended and here comes the brutal winter. But fertilizing and mowing it down for the winter will allow your lawn to be sparkling new once spring hits! Also, once you apply that fertilizer it’ll be able to prevent winter damage, which will also help it turn greener in the spring! YAY!

4. Drain & Disconnect Outdoor Faucets

PLEASE disconnect and remove all hoses from outdoor faucets…. This will prevent any water freezing. Fortunately, our hose bibs are frost free, meaning you do not need to turn them off but for added precaution and peace of mind that they can be turned off. But certainly, disconnect hoses. 

5. Test Winter Equipment

No one wants to realize their snowblower isn’t working when it is 7 in the morning and you need to get your car out to get to work on time…. So, check that it is working properly, and you won’t be stuck in a frustrating situation when the first snowfall hits! 

Now your home will be all ready to go for the coming cold months!

Here at Jon Huss Custom Homes we encourage all clients and future clients to complete all of these tasks before the fall & winter months. If you are looking to design a brand new custom home, call us today and mention this blog for a free consultation!
