Fall is coming; is your home ready? With these tips from Cannondale Generators, it can be:
Clean Your Gutters.
Your gutters aren't just for looks – they play a key role in protecting your home from water damage. When your gutter system is clogged with leaves and debris, rain can't sufficiently drain away from your home. This leads to water pouring over the edge of your roof or seeping into your ceiling; both of which can cause costly problems. Make sure to clean your gutters at least once this fall, then again at the start of the spring season.
Have Your Heating System Tuned Up.
Chances are, you haven't touched (or even thought about) your heating system in nearly six months. Many homeowners are surprised when they turn on their furnace for the first time of the season and it doesn't work. The best way to prevent that from happening is by scheduling a professional tune up from your local HVAC service. Do it now before the weather gets really cold and HVAC companies are at their busiest.
Test Your Smoke and CO2 Detectors.
Carbon monoxide poisoning rates skyrocket during the winter months due to the increased use of heating systems and fireplaces. Carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas, meaning it is impossible to detect without the use of electronic sensors. Take the time now to test the batteries of your home's smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. If you don't have any already installed, put it at the top of your priority list before the cold weather hits.
Schedule a Maintenance Service for Your Generator.
Homeowners in Fairfield County, Connecticut know that this is the time of the year when hurricanes hit the hardest. When they do, you want to make sure that your standby generator is ready to run in the event of a power outage. The best way to keep your standby generator in tip-top shape is by scheduling a routine maintenance service from the trained technicians at Cannondale Generators.
