Summary about How to Get Your House Ready for Winter
Clean and inspect your dryer vent’s hood flap to ensure it closes tightly and opens easily. If the hood is bent or the damper is missing or not working properly, it should be replaced.

Climb the ladder and sweep out your gutters of all the leaves, dirt, and other debris. Both of your downspouts should be checked and cleaned. Ascertain that they are properly connected and that they are draining in places where they would not cause problems. After that, inspect your gutters for nails or spikes to ensure they are safely attached to the building. It’s also a good time to look for rotted wood and inspect the roof visually.
Avoid any unpleasant surprises when it comes to home heating. Check to see if your heating system is in good working order. Replace your air filter if necessary.

If they can save you 10% on this, it can pay for itself and add years to the life of your equipment.
