DON’T LET THIS GREAT WEATHER DECEIVE YOU—WE KNOW WHAT’S COMING!
So far this fall, Old Man Winter has played a good game of hiding from us here in Minnesota and we love the great weather that has resulted. But this game of hide and seek may be over this weekend, as temperatures in the 30’s are predicted and the first frost of the season may occur in the northern suburbs of the Twin Cities and north. We all know the normal winter maintenance items to preform to get our homes ready for what is to come: raking the leaves, turning our gardens and putting our furniture and outdoor recreational and maintenance items away. Hopefully everyone will get their heating systems serviced by a professional to provide a safe and comfortable home environment this winter. It is important that you use a professional licensed contractor for this. There are a number of good companies that do this, but I recommend Abel Heating and Air Conditioning in Minnetrista. Caulking windows and doors can also reduce drafts, which are not only uncomfortable but eat up a lot of energy. There are more extensive projects one can do also. I have included a great article on my web site, Mnhomesbydave.com, under the Real Estate News tab this week which discusses both small changes and larger investment projects one can take on to provide energy savings this winter and into the future. Thanks for reading.
