Before any winter weather hits, complete a home check list this fall to make sure you’re prepared for winter and all that comes with it!
- Schedule a professional inspection to make sure your heating unit is ready for the cold.
- Check the seal around windows and doors to ensure they are airtight. Paint, caulk or add weather stripping if you see gaps. This will help to keep the cold air out and can save you money with energy costs.
- Look outside and note hanging tree limbs over your home or where you park your vehicle. Have them cut before the weight of winter weather brings them down.
- Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and install new batteries.
