Winterize Your Home Before It’s Too Late

We may have had a mild fall here in the metro Atlanta area, but with the recent cold snaps that’s definitely come to an end! Is your home ready, or have you neglected winterizing because it was so warm? The Premier Group is here to the rescue; check out our tips to get your home ready for winter!

  • Clean Your Gutters. Don’t let your gutters fill up with leaves and debris. Not only can that cause standing water, breeding mold, mildew, and bugs, it can cause water to gather around your home and damage your foundation. Foundation repairs caused by water damage can cost tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the severity.
  • Seal Up Leaks. Check baseboards, window sills, vents, doors, and fireplaces to make sure they’re not letting cold air in and warm air out. You’ll be more comfortable, save on heating costs, and keep pesky critters from seeking shelter in your house!
  • Program Your Thermostat. This is probably the easiest thing you’ll do! Set your thermostat to run at a comfortable temperature when you’re at home, and a more energy-efficient temperature the rest of the time, and then watch the savings add up.
  • Tidy the Lawn. Rake up leaves and dispose of them properly, stop watering, and take care of last-minute weeds so your yard can grow strong and tall in the spring, ready for landscaping projects!

If you’re ready to sell your home, don’t think you have to wait ‘till spring. Contact The Premier Group and let’s get started!
