Fall is a time for pumpkin spice, cozy sweaters, warm apple pie and cooler weather. We created a checklist that will help prepare your home for Winter.


  • Check your smoke and carbon monoxide alarm batteries – Make sure your alarm system is functioning properly when you need it by checking and/or changing the batteries on your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.
  • Clean gutters – Leaves and twigs build up in your gutters, preventing them from functioning properly. Cleaning your gutters will help water flow off your roof and away from your home.
  • Winterize plumbing – This includes shutting off water to your outdoor hose bibs, inspecting pipes, insulating pipes and inspecting the exterior of your property.
  • Furnace safety and performance checkup – Make sure that your furnace is ready to keep your family warm. One of our trained technicians can clean and inspect your furnace for safety and proper operation.
  • Drain or flush and inspect your water heater – Sediment builds up in your water heater that prevents it from operating efficiently and it could cause clogs throughout your home.
