Fall Safety and Preparedness

Below are tips for how you can prepare and maintain your property during the fall and winter season.

  • Have your heat pump (furnace) cleaned and inspected by a qualified technician.  It is important to keep this room free and clear of clutter so the equipment can be accessed with ease.
  • Replace your heating system air filter in accordance to manufacturer’s instructions.  It is always handy to have a spare clean one on hand.
  • Check that GFCI electrical outlets are functioning properly.  Be sure not to overload electrical outlets.
  • Inspect your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Replace the batteries if they haven’t been changed in some time.
  • Check gutters and downspouts for damage and remove accumulation of debris.
  • Be prepared for the first snowfall by having a snow shovel and ice melt handy.
