Do you know what’s on your home fall seasonal checklist?

Do you know what’s on your home fall seasonal checklist?

Hi!

One of the things that I love about being a Real Estate Consultant is helping people take care of the homes that I have assisted them in purchasing. A healthy home takes care of you, the people who own and live in it, especially when you take care of it first.

Here are my fall seasonal checklist items!

Interior

Replace smoke detector batteries.

Replace Carbon monoxide detector batteries.

Check and clean chimneys and fireplaces.

Have furnace checked by an HVAC company. Adjust dampers on the output vents, if needed, to give more heat to Northern-facing rooms which tend to be colder in the winter.

Lock windows to keep them square.

Exterior

Drain and shut off (before it gets cold outside) hosebibs.

Clean leaves and other debris from gutters and downspouts.

Be sure that all drainage is heading AWAY from your house.

Retouch exterior paint, and caulk seams and cracks.

I hope this helps. For referrals to any contractors or to have a whole home inspection, just contact me. A reminder that I specialize in green real estate, as an EcoBroker, so can provide anything you need in the way of an energy check as well. I would love to help!

Cheers,

Ken
