Are You Ready To Turn Your Clocks Back?

Get your house ready for daylight saving with these Alhambra, CA home maintenance tips.

Daylight saving time is coming to an end on November 1st, which means it is time to turn back your clocks and enjoy an extra hour of sleep. While turning your clocks back, it is the perfect time to take on some home maintenance tasks to ensure that your house is ready for the cold seasons. Put these home maintenance tasks on your calendar this season.

  • Replace all the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms to ensure that you stay safe as you heat up your house. While you have the box of batteries out, you should also change out the batteries in your flashlights and emergency radios.
  • While walking around and changing all the clocks in your house, take note of any light bulbs that also need to be changed. Replace old bulbs with energy efficient ones to help you save money on your electrical bill this month.
  • Replace your furnace filters with new, clean filters to help your furnace work more efficiently and keep your house warm this fall and winter.
  • Make sure that all your fire extinguishers are pressurized and functional. If you have any expired extinguishers, dispose of them properly.
  • Check your emergency kit and throw away and replace any items that are expired. Do the same for your pet emergency kit if you have one.
  • Change the directions of your ceilings fans to push the warm air down into living areas to start feeling your best.
