January Home Maintenance Checklist

Now that the holidays are over, you might be left thinking, “Now what?”

Aside from the obvious—retiring the light-up reindeer and salting your sidewalk to avoid unintentional triple axels—January is perfect for a little pre-spring cleaning and careful inspection of your home.

To help simplify the process, we created a January Home Maintenance Checklist. It will guide you through preventive maintenance tasks to make your home a safer, healthier place for you and your family in the new year.

Heres our January Home Maintenance Checklist:

- Clean or replace furnace filter

- Check and clean the heat recovery ventilator (HRV); wash or replace the filter;

- Check furnace fan belt for wear or looseness

- Check or clean exhaust fans

- Clean humidifier and check for condensation and proper humidity levels

- Remove snow and ice from roof overhang/vents
