Prepare Your Home For Autumn


The first day of autumn is September 22nd and we want to share some tips to prepare your home as cooler weather approaches.  Below is a checklist to help you get ready for the change in seasons.

  1. Remove leaves and debris from gutters and downspouts – throughout the fall season this will need to be done as the leaves change and begin to fall
  2. Trim trees and bushes so nothing is touching your home
  3. Inspect all exterior lighting, replace bulbs and reset timers as needed.
  4. Service your heating system
  5. Clean and inspect your chimney
  6. Test your carbon monoxide alarms
  7. Replace batteries in smoke alarms
  8. Place all outdoor furniture and planters in storage for winter if you live in area affected by snow and ice
  9. Drain outdoor faucets, hoses and sprinkling systems if you live in an area that experiences freezing temperatures

Enjoy the fall season and if you or anyone you know have any mortgage related questions please contact
