For most living in the Sacramento, CA area, your home is your biggest investment. It’s not only your biggest investment financially, but it’s where you spend your time, where you make your memories, and the place you turn to in order to keep you and your family safe. Keeping your biggest investment safe during these fall months is important to ensuring a happy and healthy future for you and those you love.
The fall season has it’s own hazards and weather patterns to take into consideration, and you’ll want to think of these, specifically when you protect your home during this season.
Tips For A Safer Home This Season
A few tips can help you to make sure you’ve done all you can to protect your home during this Sacramento, CA autumn season. Some preparations or considerations you can take are:
- Prepare for the cold – With the fall comes chilly crisp air that typically feels refreshing after a hot Sacramento, CA summer. However, this is a prime time to get your home ready for the much colder air that will be ushered in as the fall moves into winter. Take time to check the insulation in your attic, address any sealing leaks or cracks you may find, seal up windows and doors, and insulate outdoor pipes to avoid freezing and bursts. While it may not be too cold now, you’ll thank yourself when the freeze sets in later on.
- Think about extreme weather – With the changing of the seasons, and warm air masses mixing with the seasonal cool ones coming in, it’s time to think about the extreme weather that may hit Sacramento, CA. Anchoring any objects that stay outside, and bringing in those that can be brought in, could save your home from serious damage during high winds if one of these storms should hit the region.
- Protect yourself from fires – The fall season is the perfect season for cozying up with a candle and a warm cup of coffee or tea. It’s a season that’s ripe for family gathering opportunities. Fall is also a season where you might decide to turn the heat back on for the cold-weather season setting in. Make sure to have your chimney inspected, your heating system serviced, your oven cleaned of any debris, and candles kept far away from any belongings that could catch fire. A devastating Sacramento, CA home fire can grow out of control in just a few quick seconds.
