Fall In Love With Fall 🍂

September 01, 2023

Hello Fall!Though the summer heat may still be holding on, cooler days will be here before you know it. The autumnal equinox on the 23rd of this month marks when the days will start to become shorter than nights, and the calendar officially shifts to fall. This is an ideal time to start tackling projects around the house in preparation for colder months ahead. Below are some ways you can winterize your home now to potentially save yourself money (or a headache) later.

  • Consider upgrading your furnace if it’s older than 15 years. Even if it still seems to be working fine, energy efficiency technology improves every year, and a replacement furnace may not only be better for the environment but ultimately save you money.
  • Clean out any debris or build-up in your gutters to help keep rain or snow from damaging your roof.
  • Make sure your home is well-insulated. Check on insulation weatherstripping around doors and windows to ensure it’s in top shape and seal any air leaks in the attic.
  • Trim bushes and trees to help prevent property damage from fallen branches during harsh winter storms.
  • Have your carpeting professionally cleaned. Clean carpets can help maintain good indoor air quality and potentially prevent illnesses.

Coffee lovers: September 29th is National Coffee Day. The history of coffee is murky, but most historians believe the love for coffee started in 800 A.D. when it was discovered by Ethiopian goat herders. The herders found when their goats ate coffee cherries, they appeared livelier. As coffee began to spread throughout the world, it wasn’t always love at first sip. People were suspicious of its energetic powers, and some governments even banned the drink, fearing it stimulated radical thinking. Today, more than 2.25 billion cups of coffee are consumed worldwide each day. Want to learn more about coffee? Pour a cup of joe (or two) and enjoy these fun facts
