Winter Maintenance Reminders

Home maintenance can be a real chore for anyone, but there is no avoiding the fact; what you don’t maintain now, can drain your wallet later. During the winter months especially, there are numerous items in your home that need to be maintained. Below is a list of the most common winter maintenance items which should be checked each season.

  • Clean out gutters and downspouts
  • Change furnace filters
  • Insulate pipes in your home’s crawl space and attic
  • Caulk and weather-strip around windows and doors
  • Seal ducts
  • Clean out dryer exhaust vent
  • Check the attic for adequate ventilation
  • Check batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Clean kitchen exhaust hoods and filters
  • Winterize outside sprinklers, hoses and faucets
  • Store firewood at least 30 feet away from your home
  • Check outdoor lighting fixtures, replace bulbs
  • Install storm doors and windows

These are just a few of the items that most homeowners should maintain during the winter months. If you need assistance or just don’t have the time to get the job done, contact ANDY ONCALL®!
