Time to get your home ready for FALL/WINTERIt is important to maintain your home, right now is a good time to get a number of items done:Get your furnace checked (dont forget to change your filters)Turn the fans the other way so they are now pushing heat down, not up-clockwiseCheck the windows, some may need to be recaulked,check for drafts,put up storm windowsGutters need to be cleaned now. Also make sure that water coming out of those gutters does not drain up against the house, get extensions and move that water away from the housePull hoses off and drain water in faucets. (same if you have an irrigation system)Why blow those leaves off the lawn, they are good mulch, mow them into small pieces.Get your chimney swept and ready for the winter months (yes, clean it every year if its fire burning) Hope that helps.September 15 2013 - Cary00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
