Even though this is Southern California, and our temperatures seldom go below freezing, it still pays to Winterize your home. Follow these simple tips to help save Time, Energy, and Money!

Inspect your roof, cleaning off debris and replacing damaged or missing shingles.
Make sure all gutters and down spouts are free of debris.
Check your heating system. Vacuum vents and replace furnace filters if needed.
Insulate exposed plumbing
Check windows and doors for drafts and efficiency. Use weather stripping or caulk to seal problem areas.
Remove leaves and debris from your air conditioner’s condensing unit and cover.
Reverse the directions on your ceiling fans. This will push the hot air down and help it recirculate through the house.
Get the fireplace ready. If the chimney hasn’t been cleaned for a while, call a chimney sweep to inspect and clean it.
Close off rooms that aren’t used and shut the vents.
Prepare landscaping and outdoor surfaces. Trim tree branches and seal driveways, brick patios and wood decks.
