Time to Winterize Your Home

It is time to get your home ready for winter.  Check those outside pipes and make sure they are insulated.  Make sure your filters are clean for the winter and light those pilot lights if you havent already.  Check weatherstripping around doors.  Do not block your vents in the garage.  They exists for combustion air for water heaters and HVAC units in the garage as well as to vent gasoline fumes.  The vents should remain uncovered year round.  Do not block off wind turbines on your roof during the winter.  This will damage your insulation and lower the R-valve of your insulation.  Roof turbine should stay open year round.
