Get your home Fall ready with these tips for October!

  • Adjust humidity settings:

    During the winter, humidity levels should be lowered to 20% (each home is different – adjust accordingly).

    If ice or excessive condensation appears on your windows, reduce humidity levels even more. Learn more about managing your homes’ humidity.

  • Check weather stripping on external doors:

    The weather stripping on your doors can become tattered over time, causing hot air to leak out during the cooler months. Check and replace broken stripping if necessary.

  • Prepare outside hose connections for winter:

    Fall is the perfect time to prepare your outdoor hose connections for winter. Turn off and disconnect any hoses and spouts. Make sure to run the water through the line so there is none leftover. Finally, turn off your outside water (usually found near your furnace).

    We’ve prepared a video to help you get your hose connections ready!

  • Monthly duties:

    Remember to do these every month:

    • Check the batteries in your smoke and CO2 Detectors
    • Replace or clean your furnace air filter
    • Clean your hood range filter
