Fall Maintenance Tips: Winterizing Your Home

When the seasons change, we not only have to prepare ourselves for the weather but our homes as well. Get a head start on winterizing your home, well before the harsher temps roll in:

house energy efficiency concept

Clean Your Gutters- When leaves are falling, the last place you think to clean them out of are your gutters. But over time, leaves and other debris can easily clog up your gutters which can prevent them from draining properly.

Check Heating Systems- This is the furthest thing from your mind in the summer, but come winter a malfunctioning heating system isn’t ideal. Make sure you are prepared for the colder temps to come and have your system inspected by a professional.

Drain Outdoor Faucets/Hoses- Any water left in outdoor faucets or hoses can expand when frozen, causing a pipe to burst. Be sure to drain water and store away garden hoses inside.

Seal Leaks- Drafty windows or doors can waste 5 – 30 percent of your home’s energy. Check around your home and add or replace any run down weather stripping to prevent cold air from coming into the house (and likewise, warm air from leaving!).

Patterson Plumbing & Heating is a full service company prepared to handle your winterization needs. Give one of our expert technicians a call today: 719-554-4922 to diagnose the plumbing or heating problem, make recommendations and prepare pricing by the job – not the hour – so there are no surprises.

July Home Maintenance

How ready is your home for summer? We’ve spoken at length about the importance of AC tune-up and maintenance, but what about the other aspects of your home? Check out the below fast fixes to keep up your home during summer stress:

Clean up your landscape: If shrubs or trees are in need of trimming, now’s the best time as they’ve already established their new spring growth. Additionally weed smarter – remember hand-pulling is easier after rain fall thanks to softened soil. Finally, ensure your outdoor sprinkler system is up to par!

Know your storm plan: Severe summer weather has lead to power outages and worse – damages to homes and belongings. With weather as unpredictable as ours, it’s important to know the location of your gas and water shutoff valves as well as knowing how to turn off the electricity in the case of an emergency.

Clean your bathroom fans: Give your fan a good, quick cleaning! First, disconnect the power at the circuit breaker. Then with a damp cloth, wipe down the blades and cover.

Tackle sidewalk mildew: Has your walkway seen better days? Clean away mildew by first spraying an outdoor mildew remover on the concrete before scrubbing away. Hose the area generously before and after to ensure you protect surrounding plants.
