Check out our Fall and Winter Home Maintenance Checklists, which have helpful tips to make your holiday season more enjoyable:

  • Clean and Cover Patio Furniture – Inclement weather can do a number on your outdoor furnishings, so wipe them down and store them this fall. Move any chair cushions inside and secure the remaining pieces under an outdoor furniture cover or tarp.
  • Drain Your Water Heater – House guests can put a strain on your plumbing system. Draining your water heater twice a year is ideal to help ensure your water heater continues operating efficiently. Your holiday guests will thank you for optimal water pressure and consistently hot water during their stay.
  • Change the Air Filter in Your HVAC System – Winter is a good time to change the air filter in your HVAC system to ensure your system runs more efficiently during the colder months. Additionally, having your furnace inspected and cleaned will make sure your heating system is prepared for the colder weather.
  • Power Wash the Exterior of Your Home – The exterior can make or break a first impression for guests. Power washing your driveway and sidewalks can start your holiday season off right and help showcase your lights and decorations.
