Winterize

My kids and I have it pegged - Colorado's winter weather arrives just before Halloween. This year it looks like business as usual.  Here's a quick check list to get your home ready for the season.

  • Sprinkler system  Have your sprinkler system blown out in order to prevent it from freezing and leaking. 

  • Caulking and weather stripping  Inspect the caulking and weather stripping around windows and doors and check for cracking and peeling.

  • Ceiling fans  Reverse the direction of ceiling fans so the blades turn clockwise, forcing force warm air around the room.

  • Furnace Have your furnace tuned including changing the filter and making sure the thermostat is working.

  • Heating ducts  Ducts should be cleaned every two years.

  • Smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors  Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors and install fresh batteries.

  • Gutters  Clean your gutters to prevent clogs that can cause rainwater spill over or back up and freeze.

I can refer you to good trades people.  Give me a call if you need some help.
