Fall home checklist

  • Replace your furnace filter.
  • Have your chimney inspected and cleaned.
  • Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and replace batteries if necessary.
  • Do an inspection lap around the outside of your home looking for any areas of weather stripping that need to be replaced or wood that needs to be painted, stained, or repaired.
  • Clean the gutters.
  • Inspect your foundation and driveway for cracks.
  • Winterize your yard equipment like lawn mowers and chainsaws.
  • Drain garden hoses and store inside to prevent damage from freezing. For outdoor water faucets, turn the valves off and make sure pipes are empty of water so that they do not burst when freezing temperatures arrive.
