As the leaves turn on Vancouver Island and Fall is upon us, the temperature outside begins to drop.  This is also the time when thermostats are being turned up and the wood stoves are getting fired up again.

There are a few things to keep in mind regarding home maintenance as the cold weather approaches Vancouver Island.  What maintenance have you done on your Vancouver Island home and heating system?

  • Re-caulking windows & doors and replacing weather stripping;
  • Changed filters, duct cleaning and chimney cleaned & inspected;
  • Vacuuming out of baseboards and checking for foreign debris such as crayons.
