Fall-Winter Tips for Renters

The change of season will warrant new strategies to ensure the structural integrity of your home is not compromised. Our company, 3 Options Realty, helps renters ensure their homes are comfortable and safe during the winter and fall season. Our property managers will advise on how to ensure the interior and exterior of your home has the correct elements to withstand the harsh weather.

Property management during the winter and fall can be challenging, as snow, ice, and water can cause damage to your property. Our property management company can help. Here are a few tips renters should put in mind during these seasons:

Avoid Frozen Pipes

Exposed pipes are susceptible to freezing when the cold air gets in. Pipes such as the swimming pool pipes and pipes that run through kitchen cabinets, crawl spaces, or attics are vulnerable to freezing. Also, pipes on your exterior wall with minimal or no insulation will freeze during winter and fall.

The best way renters can avoid frozen pipes is to drain water from swimming pools or hoses used outdoors. Consider adding insulation on the pipes that run through crawl spaces, attics, and basements.

Rake Up Leaves

Leaves on your field during winter can pose many problems. The leaves can kill healthy grass and promote fungus and mold growth on your property. Raking them is the best way to leave your field looking aesthetically appealing. If you don’t have enough time to do the raking process, you can hire a property management company for professional property maintenance.

Invest in a Fireplace

Having a fireplace during the winter and fall season ensures your family is warm and safe. If your home already has a functional wood-burning fireplace, ensure you open its flue before lighting the fire. Adequate fireplace maintenance is also needed, such as sweeping ash daily.

Clean the HVAC Filters

Cleaning or replacing your HVAC system filters is recommended as you approach the winter or fall season. You must ensure a fully functional heating system during the harsh cold months. Cleaning the filters is a regular maintenance hack that will ensure your heating system is energy efficient and running optimally. If you note that the filters are damaged, consider consulting the services of a professional for replacement.

Check Your Doors and Windows

Proper windows and doors will make a big difference during the cold months. Ensure that you can adequately lock and seal them during these months. Identify any gaps or drafts that can let cold air enter your home. Be sure to do a comprehensive check to ensure they are functioning correctly.

Be well prepared for the winter and fall season by insulating pipes, draining water from pipes, investing in a fireplace, having functional HVAC systems, and having well-functional doors and windows. At 3 Options Realty, we have professional property managers that will ensure your home, office, and warehouse are well-sealed and safe in any season.

Our world-class experience ensures the complete process is smooth, and we help skyrocket the value of your home. Talk to us today, and let us help you manage residential and commercial properties.
