Autumn in Vermont

Autumn in Vermont can be spectacular, but it’s also a reminder of colder days to come. Before the snow hits, button up your home to make sure you can enjoy the winter season comfortably and safely!

❏ Insulate exposed pipes under your house with foam insulation.

❏ Repair or replace the weather stripping and thresholds around your doors and windows.

❏ Have your furnace inspected and cleaned by a professional. Our techs also inspect the heat exchanger for cracks and replace your heating unit’s air filter.

❏ Check your thermostat to see if it’s working properly. Consider a Wi-Fi thermostat to monitor your home’s temperature from wherever you are, right from your smartphone. Especially convenient for second and vacation homeowners.

❏ Check outside vents and exhaust pipes to make sure they are clear of debris and insects.

❏ Clean return air registers to help improve air quality and increase the efficiency of your heating system.

❏ Make sure your heating oil or propane tank is full.

❏ Drain outside faucets.

❏ Have your dryer vent cleaned by a professional to discard buildup and help prevent overheating.

❏ Storms can knock out power for days. A portable generator can keep appliances running and prevent the loss of your freezer contents, but make sure to use it properly outside the home.

❏ Consider a freeze alarm that provides a warning when temps dip dangerously low, before pipes have a chance to freeze and burst.

❏ Look into a tank monitor so you don’t get too low on heating fuel.

❏ Call us for more information on any of the above and call right away if you are without heat, have a gas leak, or frozen or burst pipes. We are available to our customers 24/7, 365 days a year for fast, reliable emergency service.
