Soon, leaves will be falling and, for many, especially those in the Upper Midwest, snow may be looming in the extended weather forecast. It’s time to consider several home maintenance tips that can save on costly repairs in the future.
Clean gutters. Clogged gutters cause overflowing water during rainstorms that can result in wet basements and damaged foundations. In freezing weather, ice dams can form.
Consider an energy audit. A professional home energy audit or assessment can test your home for air flow, leakage, and efficiency. Learn more here.
Get a furnace checkup. Seek a qualified technician to perform an annual inspection of your heating systems, like your furnace, wood stove, or fireplace.
Drain garden hoses and store inside. Not removing garden hoses in freezing weather can result in burst water pipes and costly repairs.
Purchase a programmable thermostat. According to Energy Star, on average, for an initial investment of $50 to $100, you will save $180 annually on heating (and cooling) bills by programming your thermostat.
Inspect your home’s exterior. Check for peeling paint or loose siding, which can cause water damage or breakage under heavy snow. Caulk around windows and doors.
Owning your own home can be a great investment. Be sure to protect that investment with proper maintenance. Preparing for the colder winter months now can prevent costly headaches later.
