Fall Home Prep Season
The fall season is upon us which means time for Fall home prep. Wow, the summer of 2020 flew by so fast. One minute we were enjoying the summer heat and suddenly the color of the leaves are starting to change. While it would be amazing if all we needed to get our Iowa homes ready for the Fall season would be bringing out the pumpkin spice candles and fall decor, the crucial part of preparing for the change of season is making sure your home is ready for the transition of hot summer days to cool fall nights. Here at Home Solutions of Iowa, we are here to help in getting your home fall-ready. Check out these helpful tips you should do before the Fall weather hits.
4 Helpful Tips For Fall Home Prep
Clean, Or Possibly Replace Your Gutters: Gutters keep your home safe from all sorts of damages. They are also a thing you often forget that need some TLC. If they are clogged, you can end up with severe damages to your landscape, siding, and foundation. While those leaves are falling from the trees, be sure they are not getting stuck in your gutters. A lifetime solution is to have LeafGuard® Gutters installed.
Check For Drafts: Heat loss through windows is responsible for 25-30 percent of heating energy use, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. To limit that cost, be sure to make sure your home is insulated well. Reach out to us to have a Home Performance Energy Evaluation to identify where your home may be leaking air.
Make Exterior Repairs: Walk around your property and look for signs of damage to the roof, siding, and foundation. If you notice anything abnormal, be sure to reach out to a local contractor.
Check Safety Devices: Go around your home and test your smoke detectors and replace batteries as needed.
