Top 10 Outdoor Fall Projects

Inspect Your Heating System

Like any other major appliance, there are quite a few things you can check and maintain on your own when it comes to the gas furnace, but there are also several things that you need to leave to a Qualified HVAC Technician!

Clean Your Gutters

If your rain gutters are not able to drain properly, and the water has no where else to go, it is likely to start seeping into your walls

Install storm windows

If you live in an older home, you probably have to put up storm windows and doors. This helps reduce drafts.

Build Compost Bins

Build your own compost bins to provide the richest soil you can imagine for your garden next Spring, Summer or Fall

Maintain Outdoor Walking Surfaces

The most common cause of accidents around your home are the dangers lurking outdoors.  Icy sidewalks, cracked concrete, tree roots, and branches.

Prevent Frozen Pipes and Hoses

Keep your hoses and pipes from freezing –  before it gets too cold!

Caulk the Outside of Your Home

Keep the cold out and the heat in by sealing up the openings in your home.

Weatherstripping Windows

Weatherstripping is something that needs to be checked on every door and window, every year.

Dryer Vent Cleaning

The filter hose and vent on the outside of the house can get clogged with lint. In the dry winter weather, it can catch fire. It’s a good idea to make sure it’s clean while the weather is pleasant instead of checking it in a few inches of snow.

Winterize Your Lawn Mower

By taking some simple steps, you will save yourself a lot of time, energy and headaches when spring comes back around.

So, who said they were bored?  Get out and enjoy the perfect Fall weather, spruce up and protect your home at the same time!
