While we’re still enjoying nice, sunny weather in the Sunshine State, many across the country are beginning to experience cooler temperatures. That slight crisp that you can sense in the air is the just the very beginning signs of Autum. In a few days, summer will officially be over and the pumpkin spice will be in full swing.
As we go from summer to fall, it’s time to start transitioning a few things in preparation. Just like your wardrobe needs to be updated for the seasons, so does your home. At Action Cooling & Heating Fort Meyers, we have a few tips that you should keep in mind to prep your home for the transition.
With the wet and crazy summer that we’ve had, cracks in your foundation can be a real concern. As the weather begins to transition, the difference in temperatures can exacerbate any existing foundational cracks in your home. Cracks near your doors and windows can also act as entry points for mice unwanted rodents to make their way into your home to escape the cold. That is why it is important to get a jump start on this before the cool weather affects the cracks. Get your cracks sealed as soon as you find them.
When the cold weather has officially settled in, HVAC businesses, like Action Cooling & Heating Fort Meyers, tend to become extremely busy with maintenance and service calls. Consider scheduling your HVAC maintenance appointment now when schedules are still open instead of later in the season when you’re fighting for appointment times. As the temperature drops, you’ll want a functioning furnace to keep you and your family warm. Schedule your appointment as soon as you can.
Trees do wonders for the environment, but can also be dangerous if left unkempt. Dead trees are not only unsightly to your property, but can be extremely hazardous to the lawn. Dead, decaying, or poorly placed limbs can cause problems in parts of the country where snow and ice are prevalent or here in Southwest Florida where we are prone to crazy winds during thunderstorms. Call your landscaper and have all hazardous trees limbs removed.
Rooms are a primary part of your home’s defense system to the elements. They take a beating day in and day out as part of their job and being the constantly up against the elements. As is the case between any season, you should check your roof for signs of damage and missing shingles. Inspecting your roof also means checking and cleaning your gutters before autumn arrives to ensure optimal drainage.
