Winter Is Around The Corner – Make Sure Your Home Is Ready!

Winter Home Maintenance Tips!

Windows:
  • Window coverings are an important part of your home’s heating and cooling system. On sunny cold days, opening window coverings (drapes, blinds, or shutters) may aid in heating your home.
Drains:
  • Inspect drains, inlets, and catch basins for blockages.
Gutters and Downspouts:
  • Check and clear gutters of all debris every six months and after thunderstorms.
AC/Furnace:
  • Check HVAC System and thermostat batteries. We recommend an inspection by a heating professional each season.

Front and Garage Doors and Openers:
  • Inspect the weather stripping on the front door to maintain a tight air seal.
Irrigation Controller:
  • Reset clock for daylight savings time and after any power failures. Keeping a good battery in the clock should minimize the need for resetting.
Roofing System:
  • Inspect the interior ceiling and attic for roof leaks. Inspect the general appearance for debris, drainage and general condition. An inspection by a roofing professional is recommended.

 

Water Guidelines:
  • Turf Areas- Winter: .75 – 1.0 inches per week
  • Shrub Areas- Winter: .50 – .75 inches per week
