Back to school, leaves changing to beautiful colors, football, pumpkin spice, holidays approaching, family and friends getting together and much more. Fall is also a time to think about the comfort and safety of your home.
Is your home ready for fall?
The majority of us would either say “no” or “I don’t know”. This is a common response as most people are looking forward to what fall brings.
Maintaining your homes comfort system is paramount to ensure your home is running at its peak performance as we head into the cooler weather.
One easy task is to make sure your furnace filter is checked or changed out monthly. This keeps your system running efficiently and can save you money on utilities as well.
Having an expert visit your home to perform a maintenance check on your system is key as well. A highly trained expert can detect any issues affecting your system. This gives you an opportunity to explore solutions and improvements in order to prevent bigger, more costly issues down the road.
Experts can also discuss comfort products such as: dehumidifiers, humidifiers and Indoor Air Quality products to make the air you breathe in your home cleaner and healthier.
Preventative maintenance checkups are a great time to ask questions about how to improve the air quality in your home.
During the fall and winter is a great time to check up on your plumbing systems as well. When the weather changes over from cold to freezing, you want to already have all hoses detached from your outdoor faucets. Another great tip is to know where your main shut off valve is to your home. If your pipes do freeze, knowing where the shut off valve is can prevent further flooding damage to your home.
Those wonderful family get togethers can go awry quickly if you don’t know what you can and cannot put down your garbage disposal. Also, people using the bathrooms in your home more frequently during these times can cause backups if your main line is full of roots or even offset or broken!
Preventative maintenance is extremely important not only to ensure your home comfort system, plumbing and drains are running and performing correctly, but also to give you peace of mind that your home is ready for fall and winter, family and friends getting together, and most importantly ensuring your home is safe and comfortable.
With everything else going on in our busy lives, this is one very important call you want to make to prevent an uncomfortable, costly emergency you may have later.
Fall is a wonderful time of year full of crisp weather and upcoming, fun events. Get your home checked up early so you have peace of mind and can freely enjoy yourself in the coming months.
