Fall Maintenance

  • Insulate exposed pipes that may freeze in the winter. Don’t forget pipes in the garage, & crawl space.
  • Clean range hood filters, fan blades and housing. Clean these several times a year and remove flammable grease.
  • Deep clean the refrigerator and vacuum the condenser coils. Remove old food and clean the fridge, inside and out. Vacuum the condenser coils if you can reach them.
  • Replace weather stripping on doors and windows. A home can quickly lose heat in the winter through air leaks, resulting in a higher energy bill.
  • Clean air conditioning filters. Cleaning the filters can help extend the life of this system. Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. This monthly task is very important for the safety of your family. Before the season of candles, fireplace usage and cooking, be sure your alarms are working. Also, be sure you have the right type of fire extinguishers.
  • Clean out the fireplace. If you have a wood-burning fireplace, have a professional chimney sweep annually inspect and remove and clean. A professional can also inspect the outside of the chimney to check for leaks and cracks.
