Fall Preparedness Tips
It’s time to start preparing your home for the winter months ahead. A little work this fall can save you a lot of energy and money. Here is a few simple tips to help you get started.
Check For Drafts
Feel for drafts around the windows and doors. A good tip is to hold a lighted candle next to the window or door. If the flame flickers, there’s most likely a draft.
Test your furnace for leaks, check heating efficiency and change filters.
Clean The Gutters
Hire a service to clear your gutters or do it yourself. Remove leaves, nests and any debris from the gutters and check for leaks.
No matter where you live or work, emergencies caused by weather, fire, wind, water and other natural or man-made disasters can strike at any time and are largely unpredictable.
