- Change furnace filter.
- Check exterior electrical GFCI outletsand reset to make sure they are working before the holiday lights are installed.
- Clean up– A thorough cleaning shouldn’t only be done in the spring. Get rid of any excess at this time of year, such as the accumulation of old newspapers and any leftover hazardous household chemicals. Store flammable materials and poisons in approved, clearly labeled containers. Keep a clear space around heaters, furnaces, and other heat-producing appliances.
