Get Ready For the Cold Checklist!

As the colder weather moves in, we take a look around our homes to see what needs to be done to keep us safe and warm.

Order firewood.

Any hardwood, such as oak, maple, beech or elm, will work fine for firewood. You want seasoned firewood that’s at least a year old. Ash is the only wood that you can burn “green,” right after it’s cut down.

Clean gutters.

If you can’t get on a ladder yourself, hire someone. Wait until all the leaves are down, then do it once

Seal up masonry.

Repair any broken joints or cracks in walkways, steps, stonework
and chimneys!

Get your furnace and boiler inspected.

Regular equipment maintenance will have you running more efficiently.

Hire a chimney sweep.

If you haven’t had your chimneys cleaned in a while, it’s probably time!
