It’s hard to believe September has arrived along with a list of “Fall fix-its”!
While the weather is decent take some time to get your home ready for winter.
Check Fire Extinguishers, Carbon Monoxide, and Smoke Detectors
It only takes a few minutes to test your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide alarms to make sure they are operational. It’s also a good time to change the batteries in the units. This task should be done at least once a year and checking carbon monoxide detectors before you turn the furnace on in cooler weather is a great way to head off problems.
Inspect Your Home’s Exterior
Nobody wants to spend money on roof repairs. And nobody wants buckets sitting all over either. Inspect your roof — as well as other expensive fixes, like concrete, siding, grading, and gutters — before it becomes a real problem. You’ll cut costs by fixing them now and stay dry and warm all winter long.
