Have chimney checked

Before you decide a fire in the fireplace would be a nice idea it is always good to have your chimney checked and cleaned. Chimney fires can be very damaging and are easily avoided with some basic maintenance. 

Furnace cleaning

In order to get the most efficiency out of your furnace, it is vital that you have it serviced every year. It needs to be cleaned and filters changed. You will be glad you took the time to do it when you get your fuel bills. 

Clean the gutter

In the fall most trees lose their leaves. Those leaves not only fall on the ground, but they also fall on your roof and into your gutters. The gutters can become clogged and the water will not go into the downspouts. It can cause serious damage to your roof and also to your ceilings. 

Seal the leaks

A little caulk and some weatherstripping can seal up any leaks you have around your windows and doors.
