With the weather getting much cooler and the days growing shorter due to the time change, the time has come to think about preparing your home for winter. Doing so now will end up saving you a lot of energy, money, and time.

Here are the most basic duties that will need to be performed in order to ensure that your home is properly prepared:

*Have your furnace checked by a professional

*Change any and all furnace filters

*Keep all of your pipes warm to prevent bursting due to freezing

*Put all of your gardening supplies away until they’re needed again

*Keep all of your plants protected

*Guard both your air conditioning unit and your gutters

*Prepare your snow blower

*Have your chimney cleaned by a professional

*Have a chimney balloon installed

*Purchase and install a carbon monoxide detector in your home
