Fall is in the air and with the cooler temperatures heading our way, here are a few "to-dos" to keep you and your family, healthy, safe and warm!
1. Vacuum out your dryer vent and make sure the flaps can close fully on the exterior. You'll save your home from potential fire risk and cold air ingress.
2. Check your furnace (or have a company come by for a fall service). Make sure it turns on properly, the filter is clean and while you have that vacuum out, give it a good clean. It's best to know it works before you need actually need it.
3. Check your fireplaces. If you have a gas fireplace, clean the glass, start up the pilot and make sure everything is working before the season starts. If you have a wood burning fireplace, have someone come by and take a look at the chimney and give it a good clean.
4. Check your smoke detectors and co detectors. If you have any gas appliances in the home (furnace, hot water, fireplace, stove) you should have a co detector on each floor!
