Living in Huntington Beach can be absolutely beautiful. The weather is gorgeous year round, though there are some things you can do to prepare for the fall. This will make it easier for you to enjoy the season without worrying about what could happen to your home.
Clean the Gutters
The gutters are an important part of your home. Have them cleaned so you don’t have a lot of debris collecting in them. Otherwise, you could end up with early corrosion and rust.
Schedule an HVAC Inspection
Your HVAC system has likely been going into overdrive through the summer months. Now, you want to be sure all is working well. It will also make it easier for you to flip over to the heat on the cooler nights without wondering if it is going to work properly.
Conduct a Simple Inventory in Your Home
This is a great time to conduct inventory of your home of fire extinguishers. You should also change out the batteries in all of the smoke detectors.
Check the Pool
If you have a pool, now is the time for filters to be cleaned and inspected. You may want to get a heater for the pool if you don’t have one. Also, if it’s not going to be used during these months, drain and cover it.
Talk to Your Family
Have a serious talk with your family about the dangers of fall, including fireplace fires, what to do in the event you have to evacuate the home, and more. You can never be too safe and you want to make sure your family is prepared.
The fall is also a great time to take a look at your home policy and see if it is sufficient.
