As the days get shorter it is time to start preparing your home for the coming winter. Below is a checklist of things you need to do to prepare your heating and water systems for the cold weather.

 It is also important to prepare your home by checking for air leakage. Check the weather stripping on the doors and replace if needed, and make sure that the windows are tight when locked. To make windows even more efficient, plastic film can be applied over the windows. Foam insulation can also be applied around pipes.

By investing a bit of time into annual maintenance in your home you can save in heating costs and be more comfortable.
