TIPS FOR HOMEOWNERS (WINTER MAINTENANCE TIPS)

Homeownership brings with it great pride ...and great responsibility, too. Here are some tips that will help you keep your home in top condition.

Winter Maintenance Tips
  • Make sure all electrical holiday decorations have tight connections. If possible, use 3-prong plugs and cords. The use of 2-prong adapters, which permit 3-prong plugs to be used in 2-prong outlets, doesn't always provide grounding to protect against shock. Unplug decorations when not in use. The use of extension cords should be temporary. To help reduce the chances of overheating, electric cords, including extension cords, should never be bundled together or run under rugs and carpet.
  • Replace or clean your furnace filter. This will keep the air in your house cleaner, make your furnace more efficient, and help lower your heating bills.
  • If your home has a programmable thermostat, set it for reasonable times and temperatures, i.e. reduce the heat slightly for night time hours, about 4 to 5 degrees cooler than your daytime temperature. If you don't own a programmable thermostat, consider having one installed; they do help reduce heating costs.
  • In the event of snow, be sure to keep the area around your air-conditioning unit clear of snow. Even though you aren't using your A/C, you don't want the lines to freeze or be damaged. If you are using a shovel, BE CAREFUL when clearing the area around the unit. You don't want to make things worse.
  • When warming up your car in cold weather, please be sure the area is well ventilated.
