Prepare to Winterize Your Home

Once again seasonal changes are here!

Time to perform a few winterizing maintenance items in your home!

  • Wrap or cover your exterior pipes to protect them from freezing, don’t forget above ground irrigation valves!
  • Flush your water heater to keep sediment from collecting on the bottom reducing efficiency
  • Reverse the ceiling fans to a clockwise direction so they push hot air along the ceiling to the floor
  • Replace air filters
  • Have your heater or furnace checked by a professional prior to winter use
  • Clean your gutters to remove fall leaves and prevent possible damage
  • Clean your fireplace and have your flue checked by a professional if you have used your fireplace extensively
  • Check your door weather stripping and door sweeps to make sure you are getting a good seal
