The chilly winter weather is officially upon us. Luckily, keeping your home in Southern Florida in tip-top shape is easy when you follow our handy winter home maintenance checklist:

Service Your Heating System

Call a professional who will be able to replace any parts and repair any flaws in your heating system. If you find that it has seen better days, why not install a few new heaters or radiators? Once the chill really hits, you’ll be very glad you did!

Check Out Your Roof

As we all know, winter can often bring with it plenty of ice, rain, and sleet. Knowing this, it is a good idea to keep an eye on the condition of the tiling on your roof. If you notice any cracks or broken tiles, call on an expert who will be able to repair it before it starts leaking and becomes an even bigger problem.

Clean Your Chimney

A warm, crackling fire brings all the comfort that you need in winter, so make sure that the chimney is spick-and-span beforehand!

Sort Out Your Gutters

Gutters that are filled with debris can cause water to collect on your roof, resulting in serious damage over time.

Insulate Your Attic

Cold breezes can come through your attic and spread all over your home. Prevent this by investing in proper attic insulation services.

Seal All Windows

Windows that have small gaps can also result in an unpleasant breeze infiltrating your Southern Florida home and cause your heating system to work harder, using a lot more electricity than you had bargained for. Knowing this, proper window caulking is a must.

So, there you have it, folks. Remember – for all your winter home maintenance needs, be sure to get in touch with Gardens Home Management Services.
