Join us as Katy shares her expert advice on preparing your home for the upcoming holidays. These five essential tips will ensure a cozy and stress-free celebration:

1. Change your furnace filter

Maintaining the warm and cozy ambiance in your home is as simple as taking a few steps to keep your furnace in top shape. Scheduling a professional furnace tune-up or opting for a straightforward filter replacement can work wonders. Not only does this ensure a safe and comfortable environment for your family, but it also boosts the efficiency of your heating system, guaranteeing that you stay toasty and energy-efficient throughout the chillier months.

2.  Cover your AC

Shield your air conditioning unit from the harsh winter weather with a sturdy cover to prevent damage and extend its lifespan. This simple yet effective step not only safeguards your investment but also ensures that your AC is ready to cool your home when the warm days return.

3. Check your home’s exterior for needed repairs

Prepare your home for the holiday season by giving your exterior a meticulous inspection. Identifying and addressing any necessary repairs in advance guarantees a beautiful, well-maintained look that will impress your holiday guests and keep your home in top condition.

4. Plant flower bulbs

Plant flower bulbs now for a vibrant spring garden! By tucking these bulbs into the soil, you’re setting the stage for a burst of colorful blooms that will breathe life into your outdoor space as winter transitions into spring. Enjoy the beauty and renewal these flowers will bring to your surroundings!

5. Tree removal/maintenance

Trim your trees to ensure a safe and well-maintained landscape. Pruning away overgrown branches not only enhances the aesthetics of your property, but also minimizes the risk of falling limbs during winter storms.
