Here are a few fall maintenance tasks to help prepare your home:

  1. Add germicidal lights – The cold and flu season is coming. Protect your home’s air with easy to install and highly effective germicidal lights. Don’t let these viruses have free rein in your home.
  2. Eliminate drafts – Reduce energy bills by removing drafts around windows, siding, and joints. Seal any potential air leaks with caulk or ask a professional for help.
  3. Check your humidifier – To keep your home's humidity at its proper level – between 40 to 60 percent – you may need to add moisture when it gets too dry. Proper humidification protects wood floors, instruments, art and furniture from dry air.
  4. Improve air purification – When you use the right purification system in your home, you can effectively remove pollutants from disrupting your indoor air quality.
  5. Inspect your heating system – Before the harsh weather comes, be sure to get your heating system inspected or replaced. It’s beneficial to make an appointment before the busy season, so you can schedule a time that’s convenient for you.

"Fall is a perfect time to take care of maintenance tasks that can increase safety and improve the comfort level of your home," said Raymond Walsh, general manager of House Call Company. “We hope these resources will allow homeowners to tackle the projects themselves or tool them with the necessary information to make an informed decision.”
