Fall Checklist – Be Prepared for the Upcoming Winter

It’s hard to think we will ever see temperatures lower than 80 degrees and that it may indeed rain A LOT in the upcoming winter months… But it can and may happen! Take these precautions now so that you are prepared for the upcoming winter ahead of time.

♦ Seal it up Caulk and seal around exterior doors and window frames. This will prevent heat from escapinng the house and will keep water from getting inside.

♦ Look up Check the roof for missing or damaged shingles. Water and wind can cause serious damage to a vulnerable roof. If your roof is on its end of life, it would be smart to have a qualified professional inspect and repair the roof before/if El Niño comes.

♦ Clear it out Clear gutters and eaves of leaves, sticks and other debris. Check the joints between sec-tions of gutter, as well as between the gutter and down-spouts, and make necessary adjustments or repairs.

♦ Warm up time The furnace should be inspected to ensure that it is safe and in good working order. Most utility companies will provide no-cost inspections. Re-place disposable furnace air filters or clean the perma-nent type according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Using a clean filter will help the furnace fun more effi-ciently, saving money and energy.
