Fall Prep Leads to a Cozy Winter
Fall is here and in full effect! With that being said, winter is just around the corner; but in Alabama, you never know when. Use the following maintenance tips to keep your house in tip-top condition through the winter.
Leaves are falling and rain is pouring, it's time to clean out those gutters! Clogged gutters can damage your gutters and cause your roof to easily ice during the winter.
Tip: Replace old and/or damaged gutters with new gutters that come with built-in leaf guards.
When the leaves begin to fall, the temperature typically falls with it. During the fall seasons, homeowners begin to notice cold air seeping through their windows.
Tip: To prevent your heat bill from increasing, apply plastic film to your window panes with double-sided tape. The best part? Seal it by using a hand hair-dryer! The heat from the hair dryer allows the film to shrink which retains over 50% of the room's heat.
A ruptured outdoor faucet pipe can be expensive and time-consuming! By prepping your outdoor house faucet, homeowners protect them from freezing and harsh winter colds.
Tip: Replace your faucet with a Freeze-Proof faucet sold at your local home improvement store. This quick install saves money in the long run and only takes about an hour for proper install.
