Shorter days, and cooler nights, it’s time to prepare your Flagler County home for fall.
So, our Florida falls may not be too different from our hot summers, but your home’s maintenance still requires a shift in schedule – just look below!
Give your fireplace a physical
Most homes in Florida have a fireplace, and while they may not get used as frequently as others, they still require an annual inspection.
If you notice your fireplace is black from ash then give it a good clean. Sometimes simple measures like this can go a long way - but still, have a professional come out to make sure everything is up to code.
We all know when we welcome fall we welcome cold and flu season. As soon as Florida becomes moody between hot and cold temperatures our sinus colds seem to last longer.
Improving air quality can alleviate cold and allergy problems almost immediately. Dust weekly, sanitize counters and wash blankets around the house. After doing these small steps, consider investing in UV lights which control mold inside your air handler.
Freshen your filter
No matter the temperature outside, your AC unit is always working, whether to cool or heat.
Filters trap dust and decay and need to be changed every couple of months. If you’ve ever noticed a burning smell when you turn your heat on that could partially be due to an old air filter. You don’t want to breathe in dirt and grime so keep up to date on clean AC living.
