It's Not Too Early to Get Your Home Ready For Cooler Days

When the temperatures turn cooler, thoughts turn to winter--and for homeowners, that means winterizing home maintenance. Make certain your house is ready to tackle Mother Nature by following these winterizing guidelines:

  1. Fire up the Furnace. At the first hint of cooler weather, start up the furnace to make sure it works. Change the furnace filters at least once a month throughout the winter, and have the furnace inspected annually.
  2. Check out the Chimney. Have your chimney inspected every year. If you have a wood-burning stove, more than once a year is a good idea. Invest in a protective cap for your chimney to keep foreign objects and rain out, and when the stove is not in use, keep the damper or doors closed.
