3 things to fix around your home in preparation for fall

The advent of cooler weather means it’s time for fall chores for homeowners in Mesa, AZ. Figuring out exactly what needs to be done can be a challenge, however. Fortunately, at INW Insurance Group we know exactly what you need to do to get ready for this season.

  1. Prepare your yard.  Trim back tree branches that could fall and damage your home or cars.  Also rake up leaves and remove debris from that can form hazards once rainstorms come in.  While you’re busy with the yard work, take a few minutes to store summer toys and patio furniture.  When winter storms roll in, having these items properly secured will give you one less thing to worry about.
  2. Service your HVAC system.  Fall is a good time to have your unit professionally inspected and the fluids refilled since many HVAC companies tend to have less work and emergency calls during this time of year.  If you decide not to have your unit serviced, at least take a few minutes to make sure your outside units are clear of debris, and change the filters and vacuum dust from the interior unit and ductwork.
  3. Inspect your roof.  Use the cooler weather to get into your attic and look for signs of dry rot and water damage.  Also make sure that you clear leaves and dirt from the roof.

It’s also a good idea to check your homeowner’s policy and look for things that need updating.  For help with this chore, call the agents at INW Insurance Group.  They have years of experience helping people in Mesa, AZ get the coverage they really need.
