Game of Thrones may have ended a year ago, but Winter Is (still) Coming. That means pretty soon you’ll be adding extra layers to your clothes every time you step out of the house, and will indulge in hot cocoa wearing your fuzziest socks when you’re at home.
However, before we welcome this season, there are a few important renovations that you need to get done with ASAP. Here’s a look at some of them.
Unless you want to spend your days feeling terribly cold even when you’re indoors, you need to ensure your HVAC system is still up and running before the weather changes. It’s still a few days until winter hits in full force, which means now is the time to inspect your HVAC system and attend to any issues or fixtures at the earliest.
Ideally, you should have a professional come in and take a look at your HVAC system. They’ll be able to pick up on issues you may not have detected or predicted, and will tell you if your HVAC system is running efficiently or if it needs replacement or repair. This will help save money on heating costs this winter. Not to mention, a fully functional HVAC system will definitely add more value to your home.
Act fast! You don’t want to be shivering when you’re in bed, even when you have a jacket and two blankets on.
Another thing you need to address ASAP is roofing repair work. If your roof is drafty, leaky at different spots, or not as stable and safe as it should be, you should think of renovating the whole thing. This is a job that needs to be done well before winter as it’s an extensive process and harsh winter weather can slow down the construction work.
For minor roofing issues that don’t require extensive repair work, the fall season works just as well. For example, if you only need to fix a leak in the bathroom ceiling or have to replace missing shingles, this can be done during autumn. Just as long as the weather’s not too cold outside, roofing renovations in fall are good to go.
While you’re at it, also consider cleaning out your gutters. We know, it’s not exactly an enjoyable task. And yet, it’s something you can’t put off any longer. Before fall season ends, make sure your gutters are unclogged and free of debris so that they don’t become a hazard in winter. You don’t want debris freezing in your gutters and breaking the drainage pipes!
Remember last winter, when you felt it was still chilly inside your house even though the windows were shut? It’s probably because of cracks in your windows. Alternately, if your windows were installed several years ago and haven’t been upgraded since, they may just have lived out their better days.
Either way, it’s time to replace them. Newly replaced windows will prevent a buildup of frost or condensation. They’ll keep cold air out, while ensuring that they provide just enough insulation to retain the heat inside the house.
