Simple Home Improvement Projects for the Fall

If you want your home to be comfortable in the winter, then you need to make the right preparations in the fall. Tackling a few simple home improvement projects this fall can help make sure that your house stays warm inside when outdoor temperatures drop. In today’s post, Handyman Connection® of Orange County recommends several home improvement projects to prioritize this fall.

Check Your Weatherstripping

You should check the weatherstripping of all of your windows and doors. Weatherstripping keeps cold air out and warm air in, so it has a noticeable effect on indoor comfort. Look for ripped, worn or overly compressed weatherstripping and replace any areas of damage. This is an easy project that can easily be completed over the weekend.

Schedule HVAC Maintenance

You should have your furnace serviced by an HVAC technician in the fall. They will lubricate parts, check electrical connections and make sure that your system will run smoothly all winter. You should also make sure to replace any dirty air filters to make your furnace run more efficiently. Regular HVAC maintenance will improve your system’s performance and make it last longer.

Check Your Laundry Vent

The inside of your dryer can get cold in the winter months, particularly if you have an old dryer vent. Check the exterior of your vent for missing or broken vent flaps. If the laundry vent is broken then you should replace it with a new and airtight vent. This small change can help keep your home warm and prevent energy loss.
