Autumn is a great time to tackle those pesky DIY projects around the home. As the trusted experts for all things property maintenance, we’re here, Hire A Hubby, to guide you through some essential Autumn DIY jobs to prepare your home for the cooler months ahead.
As the leaves start to fall, your gutters can quickly become clogged with debris. To prevent potential water damage to your home, have Hire A Hubby come and clean your gutters. It is ideal to have your gutters serviced at least twice a year.
You’ll find that a lot of draughts in the home happen between gaps in the front and back door of the home. Check for any gaps or cracks around doors and windows that can let cold air in and warm air out. Look out for any obvious gaps (usually found around door and window frames). Apply draught sealing or caulking to close off these areas.
Check other areas of your home for gaps, especially around pipes, vents, and ductwork. Use expanding foam sealant or caulk to seal these gaps..
If you require advice in deciding what seals to use, Hire A Hubby can help make that choice for you. With our professional expertise, we will have the draughts located and sealed in no time. Give us a call.
There are plenty of ways to insulate the home. Here are some of them.
Insulating exterior walls can help reduce heat loss. If your walls are already exposed (during renovation or construction), you can add insulation materials such as fiberglass or foam boards.
Insulate the Attic:
A significant amount of heat loss occurs through the attic. Ensure proper insulation by adding or upgrading the insulation material. Make sure to insulate the attic access hatch or door as well.
To create a cosy environment, focus on enhancing insulation in your home. Pay attention to areas such as the attic and walls. Insulating these spaces will help retain heat and reduce energy consumption.
Use Blinds or Curtains:
Invest in curtains or blinds. These coverings help prevent heat transfer through the windows and provide an extra layer of insulation. Open them during the day to let sunlight in, and close them at night to retain heat.
