Get Your Home Ready for the Fall With These 3 Safety Tips

It seems like summer just arrived, and now we’re preparing for the changing seasons once again.  With fall right around the corner, there are a few things you should be doing to get your home ready for the new season.  Here are three safety tips you can take care of now to avoid potential issues later in the year:

  1. Perform an inspection on your heating equipment, and have the system serviced by a professional technician if necessary.  You don’t want to wait until you need your heating system to make sure it’s working properly.
  2. Make sure your roof and attic insulation are in good repair and your gutters are cleaned out.  Leaves can gather in your gutters and when the temperatures dip below freezing, snow and ice can accumulate in them or on your roof and cause damage.  Your insulation should be inspected so you don’t lose valuable heat when you need it most.
  3. Go over your home’s fire safety plan with your family.  Check your home thoroughly for potential fire hazards and eliminate or minimize them, and make sure your family knows what to do if an unfortunate accident occurs.

Another thing on your “to do” list should be to review your homeowner’s insurance policy.  Make sure you have all the coverage options you need and that you aren’t paying for any options that may be unnecessary.  You can learn more about conducting an “audit” of your homeowner’s insurance plan with one of our expert agents when you contact us today at Schumacher Insurance Group.
