The last few mornings as I walk outside to come to work I am reminded that old man winter is coming. Now is the time to make sure you remove your hose from the outside faucets and drain the lines to prevent the line from freezing and bursting.

It is also a good time to check the filter in your heating system to make sure you are getting the most efficiency out of your heating system. If you have not had your system serviced lately it would also be a good time to have that done. Heating systems should be serviced annually. You don’t want a break down in the middle of winter.
