Weather Outlook

In short, it is looking nice out there with a chance for rain next week as well.

And that means … we may get a few more hot spells, but you can already start thinking about winterizing your home! OK, maybe you don’t need to cover the window A/C units yet or flip the ceiling fan direction. But while you have a chance to keep the windows open, go ahead and check the condition of the seals and caulking in there. Same with doors… how many gaps will cost you money this winter? And as always, air filters make a world of difference for the efficiency and lifespan of your HVAC unit!
