Check your furnace:
Your furnace is a very important part of your home. Especially with our cold Alberta winters, making sure the furnace is working to the best of its ability is very important. Doing things that are simple like checking the furnace filter and having it serviced when the time comes will only benefit you in the long run. You can never be too careful with such a large aspect of maintaining your home!
It is important to remove debris from your gutters. Letting things like leaves (or whatever may end up in there) sit in your gutters and clog them will prevent the gutters from doing a very important job which is removing and draining water build up from the roof of your home. Water damage in your roof can be incredibly costly and is easy to avoid by doing a smaller, much simpler task like cleaning your gutters. Always make sure you are following proper safety precautions when doing so. Keeping your gutters clean will help you avoid large costs in the future.
Keep an eye on pipes in your home and make sure they aren’t leaking, showing signs of corrosion or worse yet, freezing up. Your pipes are a large part of your home just like your furnace and it is important to always ensure they are working properly. If you are unsure or believe you may have an issue, consulting with a professional is always the best decision! Keep up with small tasks like checking your pipes and you can avoid large mishaps much easier.
Are your windows properly sealed? Is your kitchen sink or bathtub properly caulked? This is another small thing to keep an eye on but it is a simple fix and can save you from large costs down the road if it were to be ignored. Calking seals anything that needs to be sealed. Things like windows: If they aren’t sealed properly, you may find your home is drafty or your home is difficult to keep warm. Take your kitchen sink for example: If it isn’t caulked well, or properly: you will find that moisture gets underneath the sink and into the wood, which is never a good thing. Moisture where there shouldn’t be moisture can lead to mold and other expensive issues. Avoid these problems by checking the caulking in your home as time progresses. Consult a professional with any questions you may have!
