Preparing your home for the new season

By Louise Morrin

Whether you're an investor of real estate in St George or simply a resident, there's no doubt you'll want to ensure your property is kept safe and secure. But as we begin to move into the winter months, there are a few things we'll need to check at home. 

Gas appliances

During winter, we start to bust out the old heaters and use other heating appliances to keep the house – and ourselves – toasty. Before we get right into the heart of the colder season, it's best to get your appliances checked, otherwise you could face the risk of carbon monoxide leakage.

Make sure you check your appliances on an annual basis so that you can pick up any gas leaks or faults before you start using them. You might even want to consider updating old appliances to newer, more efficient models. 

Holes and cracks

Ever sit in your lounge and feel a cold gust of air blow in from some unknown part of your home? It's likely you've got a hole or crack somewhere in your house. 

Check all the seals on your windows and test your doors to see if they're closing properly and staying shut.

This can go a long way to making your home a bit warmer during winter and help stop heat seeping out of your property.
