As the weather gets chilly, follow these tips to make sure your home is ready for the shift to cooler weather:
– Heating system: Listen for strange noises when you start your home’s heater, and call a professional if you smell burning dust for more than 30 minutes.
– Fireplace: Buildup in your chimney’s flue could cause a fire. Hire a chimney sweep before you use your fireplace to ensure a safe and cozy hearth.
– Electricity: Use one power strip per outlet to prevent an electrical fire. Attach a timer to outdoor holiday décor to ensure optimal timing and conserve electricity.
