In facilities management it is never too early to prepare your business and commercial properties for fall weather. Rubicon believes it is better to be proactive rather than reactive when seasons begin to change. We are compiling a few tips below to help you keep your properties running smoothly in any season.
First off, stay one step ahead of changing temperatures when it comes to your HVAC systems. Create a checklist for the fall season that includes things as simple as air filter replacement. Make sure that a trusted HVAC professional is looking over your system between major season changes like the transition from cooling to heating. By having a trusted professional (or a member of your own staff) look over your system, it can help catch easy-to-fix items prior to the lowest temps of the season.
Secondly, fall weather brings plenty of rain, and rain needs somewhere to go instead of forming puddles in entryways or exits. Make sure you have a plan for cleaning out gutters of any fallen leaves or other dirt and buildup that can accumulate. Gutters are an important part of diverting water properly and keeping your properties looking professional and well maintained. If you need help with installing gutters, Rubicon can help. Here is a study indicating more benefits of well thought out irrigation.
Finally, don’t forget that plumbing has to be winterized. Fall is a good transition time to complete this before you have a problem. It’s not only traditional plumbing—you also need to start thinking about a plan for winterizing your irrigation system, or at least altering your water schedule for the fall season.
