Winter means more time inside your home as you spend time talking and laughing with family and friends. In order to enjoy the time that you are spending inside, you will want to take a few precautions to make sure that your home is protected.

Here are 3 maintenance chores that you will want to do now to protect your home this winter:

Check Your Chimney

Your chimney is going to be a big part of your winter, as it is supposed to draw the smoke out of your home when you have a fire burning. If you have not had your chimney cleaned since you used it last year, now is the time to make an appointment. We can help you by cleaning out all the creosote, removing debris and nests, and checking for any damage that needs to be repaired.

Inspect Your Roof

A leaky roof can cause a nightmare for you this winter. If water can get through your roof, it can leak down your chimney, through your ceilings, and down your walls. The damage can become extensive and your chimney may collapse if the water causes it to weaken. A professional can make some small repairs if your roof is not too bad, but if there is a lot of spots where water is getting in, it may be time for a new roof.

Have Your Furnace Cleaned

Even if you have a fireplace, you may still need to use your furnace to heat up part of your home. A furnace that has not been cleaned recently will need to work harder to keep your house warm. We recommend that you have a professional come in, so that they can clean it and make sure that it is working as efficiently as possible. Your bank account will thank you with those lower energy bills!
