Fall Home Maintenance Tips

Seal it up: Caulk and seal around exterior door and window frames. Look for gaps where pipes or wiring enter the home and caulk those as well. Not only does heat escape from these openings, but water can enter and may eventually cause structural damage and mold problems.

Cover it up: Cover exposed AC condenser units & pool heating units.
