President for Comfort 1st Insulation Mike Callahan is sharing the best tips on preparing your house for the fall and keeping pests out of the home. Comfort 1st works on keeping people’s homes comfortable and well insulated. That means that they check things like walls and attics to make sure nothing is too drafty.
