When we begin to experience cooler temperatures and falling leaves, this is a good reminder that the fall season is quickly descending upon us. This also means that our home needs and activities will also change for the season. Prior to fall actually beginning, it’s important to take the time to properly prepare your home for the season in order to ensure that everything runs as smoothly as possible, especially since the weather can change very quickly and without warning.

Here are three useful ways that you can help to prepare your home for the coming fall season:

Get Your Furnace Inspected

Take the time to contact an HVAC professional to inspect your furnace to not only change the filter, but also to test for heating efficiency and leaks. A carbon monoxide check can also be done in order to ensure that the air in your home is safe.

Clean Your Humidifiers

This will involve replacing older air filters and cleaning inside the compartment of the humidifier itself. One easy way to achieve this is to use vinegar, which is inexpensive and works very well.

Fertilize Your Lawn

By applying fertilizer to your lawn, you will be working to prevent winter damage and spring weeds. Take the time to look online or go to your nearest garden center to obtain advice on not just what type of fertilizer you need, but also when you should apply it as well. A lawn service can also do this for you if you already take advantage of services that they offer.
