Prepare For Fall


August 29, 2019

Living in New Braunfels is truly wonderful. While it gets hot in the summer, we’re fortunate to have delightful, mild weather in the fall and winter months. As great as that is, it poses an interesting challenge for homeowners. Warm days and cold nights make for a unique situation, and it’s important that you plan accordingly!

In this blog, Legacy Heating and Air Conditioning will be giving you some pro-tips on how you can get your home prepared for fall and winter in New Braunfels!


Whether you’re looking to keep cool air in on a balmy fall day, or trying to keep warm air in on a brisk fall night, it’s important to ensure that your house is properly sealed. To do this, simply check your windows and doors for drafts.

If you find one, don’t panic! It’s an easy fix. For windows, get some caulk, and re-caulk the windows that are letting a draft in. Sometimes, that’s all you need to do! At the very least, it will serve as a reliable temporary fix until spring rolls around.

For doors, there’s a strong chance that a draft is being let in because the weather stripping has worn out. If this is the case, you can find weather stripping at your local hardware that will fix the problem, hassle free!

Removing drafts from your home not only protects from the outdoor elements, but it also helps to prevent the growth of mold and other nasty things that you don’t want in your home!


While this is actually something you should do consistently through the year, it’s especially important to clean your gutters before fall comes to town. When debris builds up in your gutters, they can’t do their job!

And when gutters are unable to drain, your home is at risk of having water infiltrate your exterior siding, and even your interior if the situation is bad enough! Additionally, if water has built up in your gutters and the temperature reaches freezing levels, it can freeze and severely damage your gutters and roofing.


The nature of Texan Falls and Winters means that it’s vital your HVAC unit is working optimally. You want to be sure that you’ll have your AC working when it’s hot, but you also need to be sure that your heating systems are in working order for those nights when it gets cold.

The easiest thing you can do on your own is replace your air filter, to ensure that the air you’re circulating throughout your home is fresh and clean. That being said, your best bet would be to enlist some HVAC experts like the ones here at Legacy Heating and Air Conditioning Services to complete a comprehensive check of your entire system.

From ensuring that your ductwork is secure and clear to checking for air leaks and simply testing and performing routine maintenance, the experts can give you peace of mind that your HVAC system will be there for you when you need it.

In fact, at Legacy Heating and Air Conditioning services, we have the perfect plan to do just that! Our Peace Of Mind Protection Plan provides our New Braunfels customers with two yearly check ups to ensure that their HVAC system is performing optimally.
