Fall Home Performace Checklist
Safety-Check Your Chimney
Survey Any Structural Damage
Find Anything Blocking the Chimney
Make Sure the Damper is Working
Chimney fires are responsible for millions of dollars in household damage every year, and there are thousands each year in the U.S. alone.
Repair Your Roof
Identify Shingles That Need Replacement or Repair
Inspect Around Chimneys and Vents For Any Damage
Maintaining your roof regularly is 90% less costly than outright replacement. Stop leaks before they happen!
Inspect Your Gutters
Protect Your Gutters With Mesh
Clean Your Gutters, Ideally in Late Summer
Regular gutter cleaning helps prevent exterior damage, keeps your basement dry and saves you from making expensive home repairs.
Identify & Seal Air Leaks
Hire a Professional to Air Seal
Alternatively, Use Caulk or Weather Stripping Materials to Seal Cracks and Gaps in Your Home
You could save as much as 10% in heating costs by fixing cracks and gaps in caulk and weather stripping materials.
Clean Your Filters
Clean Any Disposable or Foam Filters
Make Sure to Toss Any Used Disposables
Have Your Furnace Inspected
Schedule An Annual Fall Furnace Inspection
Stay Consistent With Inspections For Best Results
Maintaining your furnace can be far more economical than replacing it.
