My son and daughter-in-law have just purchased their first house in Toronto. It is in a location that allows an easy commute into Brampton, where my son works. The house is in older suburbs adjacent to Brampton. As winter is far approaching, here's a list of tasks that needed doing. 1. Tune Up Your Heating System 2. Reverse Your Ceiling Fans 3. Hit the Roof 4. Caulk Around Windows and Doors 5. Get the door locks repaired by hiring a locksmith service. 6. Clean the Gutters 7. Divert Water 8. Prepare to Stow Your Mower These steps will help lower your utility bills and protect your investment. It'd be great to hear from you what your list of tasks would be.
