Colder temperatures can mean big changes for your home, so this time of year is perfect to tackle some of those home maintenance chores early. We came across a great checklist in Better Homes and Gardens recently, and we're sharing the highlights with you:

  • Inspect and clean gutters and downspouts
  • Seal gaps and cracks around windows and doors
  • Inspect your roof for damaged shingles
  • Repair damaged sidewalks, driveways and steps
  • Drain and winterize outdoor water systems: irrigation, faucets
  • Clean or replace dirty furnace filters
  • Have a professional inspect your heating system
  • Check your fireplace for build-up and clean out (chimney sweep) if necessary
  • Test any and all monitors (fire, carbon monixide, etc.) to ensure they are still working

For the detailed checklist, check out Better Homes and Gardens online.
