The weather is changing and winter is around the corner. Here are a few items to do around your home to prepare for the cold months ahead.

  1. Clean & Service your furnace. This should be a no brainer. Clean the furniture and change the filter at a minimum.
  2. Cover the A/C with a good weatherproof blanket.
  3. Caulk the windows and check the doors for drafts.
  4. Check your smoke alarms and check your carbon monoxide detectors.
  5. Make sure roof isn’t missing any shingles from the winds of spring and the rains of summer.
  6. Clean the gutters out. Try to wait until all the leaves have fallen.
  7. Put away lawn furniture and secure items like heat lamps from the winter winds.
  8. Inspect your exterior for holes or gaps in the siding. Squirrels and woodpeckers may have decided to winter in your home.
