November 15, 2012

The leaves are falling, and the air is getting cooler. With the onset of fall, winter is right around the corner! The kids are back in school and it’s time to start looking forward to the holidays. So, at Reliance First Capital we recommend our customers take heed of some of the following homeowner tips:

Landscaping: ensure outdoor safety and prepare your yard for winter weather:

Drain the hose and store it; Remove planters and pots; Store patio furniture or prepare it for the elements in your area.

  1. Drain and winterize the pool.
  2. Blow out the sprinkler system.

The garage: Cleaning your indoor storage space will make it easier to access necessary tools during the winter months.

  1. Organize your shed or garage.
  2. Place winter tools (shovels, snowblowers) up front so they are easy to get to.

House and roof:  Take time to walk around the perimeter of your house to look for any potential issues:

  1. Clean debris from gutters and ensure they are securely attached.
  2. If you have a fireplace, make sure the chimney is clean and stack your firewood.

Inside: Basic maintenance indoors can significantly improve your home’s efficiency during the winter:

  1. Clean the dryer vent.
  2. If you have a basement, look for cracks that could lead to flooding.
  3. Insulate any exposed pipes.

Take a weekend this fall to go through your list and make sure your home is safe and ready for winter. Then, sit back and relax. It’s time to enjoy the cooler months in your cozy home with the ones you love.
