Here are your Monthly Home Maintenance Tips For November:
General walk through: Check/add salt to water softener. Check smoke and fire alarms.
Finish fall clean-up: Check gutters and downspouts for any final leaves. Clean and flush all gutters and downspouts after most of the leaves have fallen. Remove leaves from window wells and yard.
Winterize windows and patio doors with plastic where desired. This can often double your insulating R-value.
Change or clean air filter in furnace. Check temperature and pressure gauges on boiler.
Have your chimney inspected and cleaned based on usage.
Buy sand or salt for sidewalk and driveway.
Finish up fall projects.
