Getting Your Home Ready for Fall
Getting ready for fall can make your Locust Grove, Virginia, home more comfortable, save energy, prevent expensive breakdowns, and extend your HVAC system’s life. Get ready for colder fall and winter weather by adding a humidifier, trimming your trees and bushes, and having your heater checked by a professional.
Adding a Humidifier
Dry fall and winter air leads to sore throats, nosebleeds, dry eyes, and irritated skin. It also makes allergy and asthma symptoms worse. Dry air also makes your home feel colder, forcing you to use your heater more to stay comfortable. It can cause cracks and other damage to wood furniture and floors and increase static electricity. Getting shocked is annoying, and these shocks could cause severe damage to your electronics. A humidifier will prevent these issues, and you can have a whole-home model installed or a portable humidifier in one or two rooms at a time.
Trimming Trees and Bushes
Trim trees and shrubs near your outdoor HVAC unit to keep away leaves, twigs, and large branches during fall. You should also clean your gutters to keep your roof in good condition and prevent mold problems. Trim any branches over your roof to make cleaning easier next year and avoid damage.
Having Your Heater Checked
Before you start using your heater, have it checked by a professional to prevent problems. That way, you can make any repairs before the weather gets cold. You should also have your air conditioner checked in spring. Change your air filters every three months to keep your system working efficiently.
