Fall Preparedness Tips
A little work this fall could save you a lot of money and energy and help prevent a disaster in your home this winter. Here is a few simple tips to help you get started.
Clean The Gutters
You can hire someone to clear your gutters or you could do it yourself. Start by removing leaves, nests and any debris from the gutters. Once the gutters are cleared, check for damage or leaks
Check For Drafts
Feel for drafts around your windows and doors. A good tip is to use a lighted candle to detect a draft. Hold the candle next to the windows and doors. If the flame flickers, there’s most likely a draft.
Have your furnace tested for leaks, check heating efficiency and change the filters.
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.
