Seasonal Maintenance

It's getting to be that time of year again where we need to be concerned about Winter maintenance. It's always a good idea, whether you own a new home, or a well seasoned home that you familiarize yourself with some seasonal maintenance basics.

  • Remember to disconnect all exterior hoses to prevent pipe bursts due to frozen water.
  • Now is a great time to change your furnace filter.
  • Check the batteries in all smoke/carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Check your downspouts to make sure that they are clear of debris and will be able to properly direct water away from your foundation.
  • Familiarize responsible family members with the gas main valve and other appliance valves.
  • Clean the clothes dryer exhaust duct, damper and space under the dryer.
  • Make sure all electrical holiday decorations have tight connections.
As always, if you have any questions regarding general maintenance, please feel free to give us a call.
