winterizing your house

I just turned off the pipes to the outside faucets & opened the spicots ( I'm not spelling well today). I also brought in the soaker hoses.

- what do you do?


I'm also wondering what I've missed

Re: winterizing your house

We make sure the gutters are cleared and check the caulking around the windows. We call the HVAC guy to inspect the furnace, clean the filters of the air conditioners before stowing. Make sure the snow shovels are accessible and make sure that we have gas for the snow blower. Oh, and make sure we have some wood and move the grill close to the house in case we lose power. That's all I can think of for now.

Re: winterizing your house

Make sure the last of your leaves get raked up before it snows. I didn't get to it last year and they were a nasty mess this spring. Bring anything that can freeze in from the garage, including paint. I also have a sump pump hose I need to bring in.
