Safety-Check Your Chimney

Chimney fires are responsible for millions of dollars in household damage every year, and there are thousands each year in the US alone. 

  • Survey any structural damage
  • Find anything blocking the chimney
  • Make sure the damper is working

Insulate Your Home

Insulation is one of the most cost effective ways to improve home comfort and energy efficiency. Insulating and air sealing can save you around 15% on your home heating costs.

  • Schedule an energy audit to locate problem areas
  • Have insulation installed in key areas, especially the attic

Inspect Your Gutters

Regular gutter cleaning helps prevent exterior damage, keeps your basement dry and saves you from making expensive home repairs. 

  • Protect your gutters with mesh
  • Clean your gutters, ideally in late summer

Identify & Seal Air Leaks

You could save as much as 10% in heating costs by fixing cracks and gaps in caulk and weather stripping materials.

  • Hire a profession to air seal
  • Alternatively, use caulk or weather stripping materials to seal cracks and gaps in your home

Clean Your Filters

  • Clean any disposable or foam filters
  • Make sure to toss any used disposables

Have Your Furnace Inspected

Maintaining your furnace can be far more economical than replacing it.

  • Schedule an annual fall furnace inspection
  • Stay consistent with inspection for best results
