Well Happy New Year...another year...
A fresh new start...Any resolutions????
January Home Maintenance
Fire, smoke and Carbon monoxide detectors- Change batteries and test ( I recommend doing this minimally 2X per year and suggest doing so when we adjust the clock for fall and spring )
Roof and Gutters- Check for ice damning and keep downspots extended
Furnace and Humidifiers- Lubricate fan, motor, pumps as needed ( the furnace and humidifier should have been cleaned and serviced prior to the heating season). Maintain appropriate humidity for the season.
Washing machine and Dryer- Check hoses and screens. Keep dryer filter clean and lint free, cleaning after every use.
Fireplace- Keep the flue closed when not in use to save on heat expense. Don't let the heat escape up the chimney!
