Fall is the perfect time to schedule some home maintenance projects because of the weather and because it gives you enough time to prepare for winter. Improving your home’s energy efficiency this season can lead to significant benefits once the temperature turns colder. Better View Windows and More, a top window replacement company, gives a few fall home maintenance tips:
Inspect Your Roof
Your roof needs to be in excellent condition before the winter arrives. Fortunately, scheduling a roof inspection in the fall can deal with this. A professional inspection will check your roof for any gaps, cracks, or vulnerabilities that can allow moisture to enter your home. These cracks are often small and unnoticeable from a simple visual inspection. Fortunately, repairing these minor issues is not a problem for an experienced company.
Upgrade Your Windows
A new window installation can make your home more energy-efficient and it can help you save money on your heating bills once the winter arrives. Modern replacement windows have low-emissivity coatings on both sides of the window glass. This coating reflects heat, so the window can help keep heat inside your home and reduce the workload of your utility systems. This can cause your HVAC to consume less energy to maintain your desired interior temperature.
Clean Your Gutters
Falling leaves, dirt, pine needles, and other debris can enter your gutters and clog them. You need to clear and clean your gutters before winter comes since clogged gutters can make it more likely for ice dams to form. In addition, clogged gutters can overflow and cause all sorts of problems, ranging from siding stains, roof leaks and landscape damage.
