As we prepare for the winter season with recipes for holidays feasts and shopping for holiday gifts, it is important to remember to protect your most valuable possession - Your Home. To add to your ongoing Honey-Do List of House Maintenance, here is a maintenance checklist for getting your home ready for the winter months:

Interior  

  • Check ceiling and surfaces around windows for evidence of moisture
  • Check caulking around showers, bathtubs, sinks, and toilet base
  • Check all stairs and railings for any loose members
  • Test all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Know the location of all gas shut-off valves


Electrical -

  • Periodically check for exposed wiring and cable, and replace as necessary
  • Trip circuit breaker and ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) to ensure proper function
  • Learn location of electrical service panels and label each circuit
  • If fuses blow, circuit breakers trip frequently, contact a licensed electrician for repairs


Heating and Cooling 

  • Clean or change furnace filters (this should be done every 3 months)
  • Lubricate fan and motor bearings (only where indicated) and listen for unusual noises
  • For broiler systems, check water level and shut-off valve for leaks
  • Have system serviced annually prior to the start of the season


Doors and Windows 

  • Check for loose or missing glazing putty or worn weather stripping
  • Check caulking for deterioration at the openings and joints between dissimilar materials (i.e. wood and masonry)
  • Check for broken glass and damaged or missing screens


Plumbing -

  • Check all faucets, hose bibs, and supply valves for leakage
  • Check for evidence of leaks around and under sinks, showers, toilets, and tubs
  • Check lawn sprinkler system for leaky valves and exposed lines
  • Have the septic tank cleaned every 2 years
  • Have the well water checked for quality
  • Check the main water shut-off valve for operation and leakage 


Foundation and Exterior - 

  • Check foundation walls and floors for cracking, heaving, spalling, deterioration
  • Check chimney for loose, deteriorated, or missing mortar or bricks
  • Check basement and crawlspace for moisture or leaks
  • Check all wood surfaces, decks, patios, porches, stairs, and railings for deterioration


Roof - 

  • Check for any missing, loose or damaged shingles, open seams, blisters, or bald area on flat roofs
  • Clean gutters, strainers, and downspouts; trim back tree limbs and vegetation
  • Check the attic for any evidence of leaks
  • Check flashing, fascia and soffits for deterioration or damage
