You may not want to think about it yet, but it is time to start prepping your Parry Custom Home for the colder temperatures ahead. Checking out your furnace now and getting things in order for the colder weather will make you happy it is done once the really cool weather sets in.
Check out your furnace before you really need it. Have a service person out to do a thorough check on the heating system as it is just getting cool out. Their schedules are more flexible before the first cold snap and they start getting the emergency calls. They will be checking the system and turning the vents, changing the filters and making sure the system is running like it should.
Flush out your underground sprinkler system. You want to make sure that you flush out the lines before it freezes outdoors. If you have it serviced they will blow air into the pipes to flush out any water left in the lines. You don’t want to forget about your sprinkler system because the lines are just a few inches below the grounds surface and are prone to freezing and can break if not treated properly in the fall for the wintertime.
Have your roof inspected to get the full life out of your shingles. This is a good time to look for loose or deteriorating shingles. Trim back any branches that might rub on the roof as the wind blows them around and clear leaves and debris from the gutters. Also check the flashing around the chimney and inspect down spouts for any repairs that may be needed before winter sets in.
Hopefully this will remind you to get your Parry Home ready for the colder days ahead. Add this as a reminder to your calendar as a regular check up time for this time of year and you will always be one step ahead of everyone in the Pittsburg area.
