Home Maintenance Checklist – Winter Tips

Below is a home maintenance checklist offering tips and advice to keep your home’s systems in good working order during Winter months.

  1. Test your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace batteries and any damaged equipment.
  2. Take fire extinguishers to a certified inspector to make sure they function properly.
  3. Change/clean HVAC air filters.
  4. Check faucets in your kitchen, bathrooms, basements, etc., for leaks and other problems. Clean the lint out of your clothes dryer vent.
  5. Check refrigerator and freezer gaskets. Place a dollar bill on the seal then close the door; if the bill easily moves, the seal is not working properly.
  6. Use a vacuum with a brush attachment to clean coils on the back of your refrigerator and freezer.
  7. Flush water heaters to remove sediment and improve efficiency.
  8. Dye test toilets and repair identified leaks.
