Clean Your Air Filters And Check Your Heating System
The last thing you want to happen is wait to turn on your heat for the first wintery day only to find out it isn’t working. Go ahead and do a test run today so you are ready for that first brisk day. And, it’s always a good idea to change you air filters regularly.
Hire A Contractor To Inspect Your Home For Any Damage
In addition to having your roof inspected, you may want to have someone come out and check every other aspect of your home for example, your siding, windows, cracks in your foundation, etc.
Check Your Pipes
It’s always good to check your pipes every now and then to make sure there are no cracks or leaks that you aren’t aware of.
Tidy Up Around Your Home
Keeping your trees trimmed can prevent damage to your roof and your home as a whole. It’s also a good time to go ahead and clean out gutters especially since hurricane season is ending and there is probably a good amount of debris in there. Lastly, I would go ahead and make sure your home is securely sealed. Taking the proper steps in sealing your windows and doors can prevent the outside air from getting inside on those cold winter days.
