Fall Maintenance Checklist

Use these nine tips to prepare your old home to endure the cold road ahead.

As we transition to decorating with pumpkins and gourds and take scenic drives to marvel at nature’s colorful foliage, it’s a great time to shift our focus to home maintenance projects. If you reside in a place where a cold, frosty winter is likely, setting aside a few hours to do an energy audit can save you money month after month. It’s well worth your time! Complete our annual fall checklist to ensure your home is ready to withstand winter’s often harsh and unpredictable weather conditions and keep it running efficiently throughout the holiday season and beyond.
