Few of us want to admit it, but summer is coming to a close. The wildflowers are going to seed and the squirrels are busy gathering the acorns that are finally ripe. Sure, the skiing will be compensation for the lack of warm temperatures, but there is still autumn to get through and there are responsibilities to be taken care of around the house before the snow fall and you head up I-70 for a powder fix. Comfort By Nature Knows that you rely on your HVAC system year round and has service and maintenance services that will keep it going so you can spend your time and money on fun trips to the mountains!
Outdoor Household Autumn Chores
Whether you own your own home or rent, there are chores around the house to make sure your place looks nice and is in good shape. If you have a garden filled with flowers, you’ll need to cut down all the dead stalks once they are brown and dry. It’s a great idea to gather some of the seeds of your favorite flowers to give as seasonal gifts to spread the love of flowers to your friends and family. After the leaves have fallen, you will need to brave climbing a ladder and clean out your gutters so they don’t get clogged and backed up. This keeps the water flowing away from your home and protects your roof and your foundation.
Indoor Autumn Chores
There are chores to be done indoors too. If you store birdseed in your home, make sure you seal it up tight or you’ll soon have some little critters making your bag of birdseed into a mouse grocery store. Do the same for all loose food in the kitchen as well. Since we are an HVAC company, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention changing your filters on your HVAC system. If the filter is full, the friction will slow down the air forcing your heat pump to work harder thus, using more energy and causing your bill to be higher than it needs to be.
