Once you have your custom dream home, taking care of it does not have to become a difficult task. As experienced home builders in Calgary, at Sunset Homes, we care about guiding our homeowners in every step of the building process as well as in every step of the construction of your custom infill home. Fall has arrived, and with the new season, it is a perfect time to check some items in your custom home and make it ready to endure the cold days ahead. Take a look at these valuable tips for your custom home fall maintenance we have prepared for you.
Get your Custom Home Ready for the Cold Days
October is still a good time to check and prepare your home exteriors for safety during winter. Check your exterior pipes, gutters, and downspouts. When it comes to cold weather, it is necessary to think about reducing any chance of water damage in your new infill home. You can easily do this by draining your outside faucets, preventing your exterior pipes from freezing.
Clogged gutters can cause significant damage as well, check if the water runs without problem or if there is any leaking that you can correct with caulking. Having your gutters and downspouts working protects your custom home foundations from water damage. Other important exterior items to check are your lights and bulbs, having them checked and working will always come handy during the winter, as the days are shorter.
Check your Custom Home’s HVAC
With the weather changing, not only do your new custom home exteriors need to be taken care of, but also the interiors as well. One of the most important systems in your new modern home is the HVAC system, which stands for heating, ventilation and air conditioning. As inner-city home builders in Calgary, we know how important it is to get your HVAC checked at least twice a year. This means preparing your custom home either for the cold or the warm days. As we also suggested for your Spring Maintenance, make sure to have clean filters. Having clean filters will ensure that your system will keep running efficiently and avoid an increase in your energy bills.
