While the rest of the country readies their snow shovels for the remaining winter months, we don’t have to do too much to do to prepare here in Ventura County. Even you don’t need to do a lot of work, though, there are some maintenance minders well worth handling in the coming weeks. Keep your Ventura County, CA home in top shape through the coming months with these maintenance suggestions.

  • Clean your Windows: Sunlight streaming in through your windows not only makes it easier to banish the winter blues, it also keeps your home warmer without running up your energy bill. Dirty windows can block as much as 20 percent of your potential light, so clean your windows today. As an added bonus to winter window cleaning, the cloudy days of this season make it easier to see streaks.
  • Swap your Furnace Filter. You’ll be relying on your furnace to keep your home cozy, so make sure it can rely on its filter. New filters are extremely affordable, and they’ll improve your air quality, keep your home cleaner, and make it easier for your furnace to function, slashing energy costs. Well worth it!
  • Ready for Rain. El Niño is predicted to dump buckets on us. Get your home ready by adding a chair by your front door where people can take off wet footwear, a rack for said footwear, a non-slip doormat, and a place to hang jackets and umbrellas.

As you clean your windows and ready your front door, you may come to realize that – upon closer inspection – they need to be replaced. You can request a consultation from the Ventura County door and window experts by contacting Agoura Sash & Door. Based out of Westlake Village, California, we’re here to help you make the best decision for your home this winter and throughout the year!
