Tip 8 On How To Winterize a House

It's that time of year again for most of us in the United States.  Time to turn the clocks back an hour for daylight savings time.  Man I do miss living in Tucson where we didn't do that but I don;t so I have to.

Anyway that leads us to tip 8

Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
1.  Change the battery in your smoke detectors.  
2.  Consider adding smoke detectors to every room.  The sooner you know there is a problem the better chance you have of getting everyone out.
3.  If you don't have a carbon monoxide detector get one and place it near your furnace and depending on the type of water heater you have place one there.
4.  If you have a carbon monoxide detector and it is older the 6 years or is making a small chirping noise then its time to replace it.
5.  Check all fire extinguishers to make sure they are still charged.  Replace any that need it.
