It is time to get your house in shape for the cooler months ahead. Here are some home maintenance ideas that will keep your home running in peak condition all winter long.

Exterior Maintenance

  • You will want to check foundation for cracks and caulk such as where pipes or wires enter the house; this can save you money in the long run. 
  • Make sure you have storm windows and doors and remove screens. 
  • Inspect exterior walls to see if any paint is peeling or blistering on the house or outbuildings. Peeling paint is a sign that the existing paint film is failing. 
  • Make sure the roof is in good shape and make sure there are not any loose shingles. If not taken care of, damage can happen with deterioration to insulation, wood and drywall.

Interior Maintenance

  • Air from windows and doors are easy to find, make sure to apply weather stripping and caulk to areas that have air venting issues. 
  • Change the direction of your ceiling fan to create an upward draft that redistributes warm air from the ceiling.
  • Check basement windows for drafts, loose frames or cracked panes.
  • Vacuum internal parts of air conditioners. 
  • Clean your humidifiers regularly during the heating season. Bacteria and spores can develop in a dirty water tank resulting in unclean moisture.
