After you have completed your checklist for the outside of your home, don’t forget the one for the inside.

This is a good time to check your smoke alarms and CO2 detectors.  House fires occur more during the winter season, plus with closed up homes and the heat on can sometimes cause carbon monoxide to be in your homes.  Make sure to have your HVAC company check your system for any issues.  Don’t forget to check the batteries in your smoke alarms and change your air filters.

Feeling a draft by your doors or windows when you walk by?  Make sure you check the seals on your doors and windows.  You may need to caulk around some of the surfaces as well.

It’s great to warm up by the fire on a cold day.  But, you want the fire to stay inside your fireplace. Make sure you have your wood burning stove or fireplace cleaned yearly.

These are just a few tips to help get you through the winter.

Be on the lookout for some additional winterizing tips.  Please share with your friends and family members as well.
