It might be hard to believe, but crisp mornings and pleasantly cool days are headed our way. While we're all ready for some relief from the blazing heat, there are a few easy things to do around your home to make sure you're set for the new season ahead.
1. Test Your Safety Devices
For most, fall is the inaugural season for yummy candles, a cozy fire, and lots of Crockpot or stovetop meal, especially with people spending more time at home than usual. Before you cozy up, be sure to change the batteries on your smoke detectors and test all of your home safety devices so you can rest easy knowing your systems are safely operating.
2. Have Your HVAC Unit Inspected
While fall is the perfect season for turning your air off and letting in a cool outdoor breeze, you want to ensure your air system is prepped for those inevitable chilly evenings. Give Allied a call and we'll send out a qualified technician to give your HVAC unit an inspection to make sure it's all set.
3. Clean Your Gutters
Clean out your gutters of twigs, leaves, and debris to make sure they aren't clogged before the trees really start to shed.
4. Have Your Chimney and Fireplace Inspected
Wood fireplaces are nostalgic and give off a comforting scent like no other, but they can be dangerous if you don't have your chimney inspected and cleaned on a routine basis. Before you snuggle up next to the fire and sip your cider, call a professional to come out and make sure it's safe to operate.
5. Change Your Air Filters
This is a reminder we can't enforce enough: Change. Your. Air. Filters! This will help you keep your house at the temperature you desire, and help your HVAC unit run efficiently without overexerting. If you want to have full confidence that your home's HVAC unit is ready for fall and winter, give us a call and we'll send a technician over to do a thorough inspection.
