As the weather cools it becomes an ideal time to get work done both inside and outside the home.
- Have the furnace inspected by a licensed heating contractor before the winter rush.
- Clean or replace the furnace filter according to manufacturer's instructions. Dirty filters restrict air flow and force the furnace to work harder. Many manufacturers suggest replacing them every three months.
- Install a CO detector. Malfunctioning gas appliances or venting can cause a build-up of carbon monoxide. CO is colourless, tasteless, odourless and deadly. Installing a detector can save lives.
- Call before you dig. Looking to build a fence or plant for next season? It's the law to call before you dig. Ontario One Call is a free locating service. Contact them at least one week before starting your project at www.on1call.com or 1-800-400-2255.
