With the warmer weather still lingering, now is the perfect time to get your home fall-ready before the chillier seasons hit! We’ve prepared a guide filled with useful tips so you can be confident that your home is prepared to embrace the fall season with style.

Cozy Bedding

Now is the time to bring out those cozy down comforters, sheets and blankets and show them off. Give them a good wash and keep them accessible so when those chilly nights come, you’ll have your layers ready to go. Having easy access to warmth and comfort when you need it most is invaluable during these cool fall months!

Prepare the Fireplace and Chimney

Having a fireplace is key during the fall and winter seasons; it's where people naturally gravitate towards when relaxing with friends and family. Now is a great time to schedule a chimney cleaning to avoid chimney fires. Give your fireplace and chimney the care they deserve, as they’ll be getting plenty of use in the coming months!

Stock Up On Firewood

While you’re tending to the fireplace, now would be the perfect time to pick up some firewood to make sure you’re well-stocked. It will be well worth it and show that you’re prepared for the long haul as the fall and winter come.

Check Your Furnace and Boiler

Whether you have a furnace or a boiler, it’s wise to make sure everything is running smoothly before the temperatures drop. Do a thorough inspection and be sure to switch out the filters regularly throughout the fall and winter. This can help enormously in keeping energy costs to a minimum and saving money.

Plant Fall Bulbs for Spring Flowers

There’s an ample variety of flowers that you can plant in the fall that will bloom in the spring, so take the opportunity to get some gardening done before the ground freezes. Just some options of bulbs to plant for spring flowers you could consider include tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and lilies. While you might not believe it, fall is here and winter is just around the corner! We hope this guide has helped you create that much needed to-do list. Start checking off the boxes today and make sure that your home is kept in tip-top shape this season.
