Autumn Home Maintenance Tips

The leaves have nearly all fallen and it has turned cold and rainy this weekend.  If you haven’t already, is a good time to make sure the house is ready for winter.  The following is a list of items anyone can perform:

Inside:

Make and practice a family fire escape plan

Ensure windows and doors operate smoothly

Change the furnace filter

Inspect, dust and change batteries in smoke detectors and Carbon Monoxide detectors

Have a professional check the heating system

Outside:

Clean the gutters and downspouts and make sure they are in good repair

Rake the leave away from the side of the house

Check and replace any faulty door and window seals to keep drafts out

Run lawn equipment until all of the gasoline out of the tank

Take down bird nests from the chimney flue, electrical fixtures and downspouts

Have a chimney sweep inspect and clean the chimney, especially if wood is burned
