Fall Home Maintenance Checklist

Updated: Nov 12, 2023

Winter is Coming! It is time to winterize your home, but how exactly do you do it?

Use this list to get started.

  • Have a heating professional check the heating system.

  • Protect the home from frozen pipes.

  • Run all gas-powered lawn equipment until the fuel is gone.

  • Test the emergency generator.

  • Have a certified chimney sweep inspect and clean the flues and check the fireplace damper.

  • Remove birds’ nests from chimney flues and outdoor electrical fixtures.

  • Make sure the caulking around doors and windows is adequate to reduce heating/cooling loss.

  • Check the weather stripping around your doors and windows.

  • Winterize your pressure washers, travel trailers, and other items that may have exposed plumbing by removing water from the lines with compressed air.

  • Make sure that the caulking around the bathroom fixtures is adequate to prevent water from seeping into the sub-flooring.

  • Clean the gutters and downspouts.
