Winter is a fun time of year for many people. The weather cools down a little bit in Chadds Ford, PA and there are plenty of fun winter activities that can be enjoyed. Before you head out on a fun winter adventure, there are a few things you should do to prep your home for the colder weather and protect yourself from costly repairs. Use this list to get started on your winter home prep.
Clean out the Gutters
During the fall, cleaning out the gutters is something you probably want to wait and do after all the leaves have fallen. However, if your gutters are full of leaves, then you will find the next time it rains or snows, they are not doing their job. Help make sure they stay in great shape by keeping them cleaned out after the leaves fall.
Check Your Heater System
While it stays hot in the summer, you may want that heating system to work well once it starts getting cold. The best time to do it is in the fall. This way, you can get proper maintenance on it and ensure that it will work the first time you need it to this coming winter. It is a good idea to get this looked at least once a year and there is no better reminder than fall. While you are at it, you may even want to check and replace the filters in your home.
Get Home Insurance
