Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

While it is only August, it’s never too early to get a head start on routine maintenance, including contacting a licensed electrician.

Fall brings comfortable temperatures, colorful palettes, and the scent of pumpkin spice. Seasonal baked goods and lattes can be found almost anywhere.

It also brings a laundry list of home maintenance tasks essential for ensuring your heating/cooling, drainage, and electrical systems are optimally functioning.

Fall is an ideal time to have as electrical home inspection performed by a licensed electrician. An electrician can identify and repair any discovered problems.

Here are some vital interior and exterior home maintenance tasks.

Interior Maintenance

Replace Air Filters – Invest in high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters to improve HVAC performance, reducing your monthly heating and cooling costs. Replacing the filters also helps improve indoor air quality and comfort.

Address Drafts – You can prevent the transfer of conditioned and unconditioned air around your windows and doors through caulking and weatherstripping. These materials can be purchased for under $20 at most any local home improvement store.

Test Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Detectors – These devices can help protect your family. You should test your smoke alarms and CO detectors each fall and spring. The batteries should be replaced at this time as well.

Exterior Maintenance

Clean Gutters and Downspouts – Make sure the gutters can channel water around from your foundation by scooping and then flushing out any debris. It would help if you cleaned these once in the fall and again in the spring.

Visually Inspect the Roof – Your roof acts like an umbrella, protecting you and your valuables from various weather elements. Walking around the perimeter of your house, using binoculars, examine the roof for missing shingles or storm damage every six months.

Check Your Outdoor Lighting – Exterior lighting fixtures are subject to Texas’s weather year ’round. Check all fixtures for unusual wear and tear, and if needed, either make repairs or replace them. You should also replace any burnt out light bulbs.
