Here are some helpful tips for homeowners... 

Spring...

  • Make sure your air conditioner is free from debris and weeds for easier air flow.
  • Call your air conditioner maintenance company for a yearly "check up."
  • Clean window frames and weep holes of debris.
  • Clean patio and window seels. 

Summer...

  • Have your dryer vent cleaned!  Accumulation of lint caused by dryer softener sheets can lead to build up of lint in venting system, and possibly a fire.  (Recommended to clean every 2 years.)
  • Do not use grills inside structures.  Also, keep away from siding.

Fall...

  • Remove your patio furniture to an indoor space.
  • Have your furnace maintenance company check your furnace for a yearly "check up."

Winter...

  • PROTECT the 4p's-PEOPLE, PETS, PIPES, PLANTS
  • Carry a small plastic container of sand and/or ice melt when walking to and from your vehicle.  A small amount sprinkled on the concrete may eliminate a nasty fall.

Monthly...

  • Change furnace filter.

  • Keep a fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen in case of emergency.

  • Clean furnace room drain with hot water.

  • Check smoke detector to see if batteries need changed.
