• Now is a good time to paint interior rooms while it is still warm enough to have the windows open for ventilation.
  • Test your heating system before you need it to make sure everything is working properly.
    Clean and vacuum dust from vents, baseboard heaters and cold-air returns.
  • Check out year-end close-out sales on lawn and garden equipment that you may need for next year.
  • Inspect weather-stripping around doors and windows and repair or replace if necessary.  Also caulk exterior joints around windows and doors to help lower heating and cooling bills.
  • Inspect and clean your storm windows and doors and get them ready for installation. Storm windows/doors can help you save energy during the cold winter months.


  • Now would be a good time to check the condition of your roof to prevent emergency repairs.
