Whether you want to admit it or not, winter weather is just around the corner. During the next couple weeks there are some maintenance items you should perform to winterize your home.

1. Garden hoses should be disconnected from the spigots to prevent the possibility of freezing even if it is a frost proof valve.

2. You should have your furnace cleaned and serviced by a qualified technician. Also remember to change your furnace filter monthly.

3. Gutters should be cleared of all leaves and other debris.

4. This is a good time to make sure your sump pump is operating properly. Don’t wait for the spring thaw to find out it quit!

5. Check the weather stripping on all exterior doors and replace if necessary. This includes garage doors.

6. Change batteries in smoke and CO detectors. It’s often easier to remember if you change the batteries every time you change the clocks.

7. Storing firewood is always an issue. It is not recommended to store it in the garage. It is best stored outside, but you may want to cover it to keep it dry and don’t stack it too close to the house. Don’t give the bugs an easier way to access to your house!

8. Make sure windows provide an airtight seal to the outside. No use making your furnace work harder to heat the outside.

9. Remember to close the fireplace flue when not in use, and to open flue before starting a fire.

10. Get that snow blower tuned up and check your shovels. It can be difficult to do this if you wait for the first snowfall!
