Fall is In the Air-

A

Are you ready for fall? I’m not referring to the taste and smell of pumpkins or Katy TX trick or treaters but your home? Fall is the perfect time to give your home some extra TLC before the bitter cold sets in. Here is a list of items we recommend our customer in Fort Bend consider to prepare their home for Falls weather.

Gutter Cleaning

While you were enjoying the summer, chances are debris such as twigs and leaves built up in your gutters even if you have gutter guards. If left full of debris, clogged gutters and drains can prevent your drainage system from working correctly. When the drainage system does not work correctly water can seep into the walls of your home causing larger and more costly repairs. Save yourself the hassle of repairing a leak with preventive maintenance by simply cleaning the debris out of your gutters and drains. We also suggest running water through the gutters to check or misalignments that can also cause water damage to your home.

Landscaping and Gardening

While spending the day outdoors go ahead and trim your branches that are close to your roof or any power lines. Fall weather in Houston can cause strong winds and a limb cleft untrimmed can cause damages to your roofs shingles.

Look for Leaks

Keeping the cold air out and the warm air in can save your electricity bill from spiking! Warm air will escape out of cracks and crevice’s such as windows and doors and can make your heating system work harder as it ties to keep your house warm and cozy. EHE recommends Katy homeowners caulk and seal cracks and openings or use weatherstripping to seal components that move like an operable window. Since your sealing, your windows if you notice your windows are covered with dirt and grime call us out and we will make your windows shine.

Dryer Vents

We also recommends having your dryer vets cleaned out since more dryer fires occur in the fall and winter months. Lint traps filters should be routinely cleaned before every drying cycle, but regular maintenance is an effective way to prevent lint build up and keep your family safe year around.

Check Smoke Detectors

When seasons change this is a great reminder to check all smoke detectors and replace the batteries then don’t forget to press the button to ensure they are working properly.

Light Up Fort Bend County

Soon we will have less hours of daylights so it’s a great time to ensure your outdoor lights are functioning correctly. We suggest energy saving lights for outdoor pathways and porches to save you energy. While your changing outdoor bulbs consider having us install our energy efficient Christmas lights, our lights will reduce the cost while still allowing you a brilliant display of lights for the holiday season.

Using these tips will help you stay warm and cozy while saving you money and energy. If you’d like a free quote to enlist our services please call us at 281-545-7740 or visit us online http://www.ehehomes.com
