Home maintenance myths could be costing you a lot of time and money. Carolina Gutter Helmet® & More, the makers of the best gutter guard system in the state, debunk some of these myths below. 

The More Insulation Your Home Has, the Better

Now that the weather’s getting chillier, it’d be a good idea to make sure your home’s ready for winter. One way of doing that is to check if your home has enough insulation. However, keep in mind that insulation can be too much of a good thing. If your home has too much insulation, heat and moisture can build up inside, potentially causing mold to form and forcing you to pay out-of-pocket for repairs. 

Furnace Filters Need to Be Replaced Only Once Every Season

Checking the furnace should be on every homeowner’s pre-winter maintenance checklist. After all, you wouldn’t want your HVAC unit to break down in the middle of winter. Make sure to replace the filters. Otherwise, dust will circulate throughout your home and potentially trigger allergies as well as other respiratory problems. The last thing anyone wants is to spend the holidays in the hospital. 

It’d also be a good idea to routinely check your furnace well before the start of fall or winter. Contrary to what many believe, furnace filters should be replaced more than once every season, depending on how dusty your home is. 

You Only Need to Clean Your Gutters During Fall

You should routinely clean your gutters throughout the year, although more leaves end up in gutters in fall. If you don’t have time to clean your gutters, we recommend installing gutter guards to prevent leaves from clogging your gutters.
