  • Get your furnace serviced if needed. Turn on your furnace to make sure everything is working properly.

  • Get your motor boat out of the water, drain all fluids and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for winter storage. For more information, go here.
  • Make sure your RV is winterized. Here is some good information.
  • Check your inventory to verify that you have extra supplies like water, flashlights, food and candles on hand.
  • Purge all sprinkler system lines of water with an air compressor to prevent freezing and bursting.
  • Ice and snow can weigh down branches, so be sure to remove any that are hanging too close to the house.
  • Invest in a home energy audit.
  • Put a clean filter in your furnace.
  • Replace batteries in smoke detectors.
  • If you have any ceiling fans inside your home, know the rules; counter-clockwise rotation produces cooling breezes and clockwise rotation produces warmer air.
