These projects that are ideally undertaken in or around December:

1. Clean lint from clothes dryer vent, from the dryer drum to where the air is vented outdoors.

2. Service clothes dryer, cook top or stove, dishwasher, trash compactor, counter-top appliances, exhaust fans, etc. according to the manufacturers’ recommendations.

3. Disconnect the garage door opener. Lubricate hardware. Springs on overhead doors should be adjusted by a qualified service technician.

4. Clean underside of range hood and clean or replace filter.

Home maintenance means both safety and savings, and are little projects like these are best done on a year-round basis. I am sure you can think of other projects that can both protect your family and entail in savings when done well.
