Have you finished Winterizing your Home?

Northern Virginia has had a mild winter so far.  Yet, chances are pretty good that the temperatures will dip down again soon.  Preventing heat loss and frozen pipes is the goal of Winterizing your home.

Remember to repair/replace/install weather stripping around drafty doors and windows.

Have your Heating system checked, cleaned and change the filter.  Most filters are supposed to be changed monthly.  Some last longer.

Does your home have gas?  Make sure your monoxide detectors are working.

Clean your gutters and downspouts of debris to prevent clogs in your drainage system.

Have you had your chimney cleaned and inspected so its safe to use this winter?  Call a technician today if you haven't.

And don't forget to turn off the outside water spickets (and drain them).

Hope your home is safe this winter.

If you'd like to make the most of your real estate experience call me today,   I will treat your transaction as if it were my own....
