3 things to check in your home for fall

The advent of cooler weather is an important time for homeowners in Brecksville, OH.  With the change in seasons comes a raft of new chores, however. Fortunately, at Ganley Family Insurance we know what you need to do to get ready for the fall.

  1. Pack away your summer stuff.  Along with storing your bathing suits and tank tops, take the time to pack away your yard toys and patio furniture. Place everything in a dry space away from water leaks or other hazards. When winter storms hit, this will give you one less thing to do.
  2. Prep your yard.  Trim back tree branches that could fall and damage your home or cars.  Also rake up leaves and remove debris from your roof and the sides of your home. As this material gets wet, it can decay and rot the structure of your home, leaving you with massive repair bills next spring.  If you can, make sure to remove this material from your roof as well.
  3. Prepare your HVAC system.  Fall is a good time to have your unit professionally serviced, since many companies tend to be slow this time of year.  Also make sure that your outside unit is clear of debris and weeds.  Remove dust form your heater coils and ductwork with a vacuum cleaner.

This fall, if you’re thinking about getting a new home owner’s insurance policy, or if you just want to save money on the policy you already have, call the agents at Ganley Family Insurance.  They have years of experience helping people in the Brecksville, OH area find a policy that’s right for them.
