Spice Up Your Backyard
Outdoor living is part of today’s lifestyle. More homeowners than ever are turning their outdoor areas into attractive and relaxing extensions of their homes during the warmer months of the year. This can be as simple as a sitting area for the family, or include a combination of decks, patios, walkways, gazebos, gardens, pools, ponds and fountains.
Protect Your Home During the Holidays
- Motion detector lights are better than static lights. Regularly check to make sure that the light bulbs aren’t burned out or broken.
- Trim bushes to waist level.
- Arm your alarm, even when you are at home.
- Lock your gates and fences. Metal gates and fences are best because the noise that they make when opened is a deterrent.
Ready for Winter?
5 tips to prepare your home for the temperature drop:
- Shut off hose bibs and remove garden hoses. Make sure you test your plumbing and shut off valves to prevent them from seizing.
- Clean out your gutters and check roof drains.
- Service your fireplace.
- Change the air filter to your furnace – This will ensure optimum hot air flow.
- Get a certified contractor to tune up heat pumps, boilers and gas furnaces.
