Winter will be here before you know it and the last things you want to worry about are your home and your car. That means you need to prepare them now so you don’t have to! Tips like these will take out some of the headaches and hassles of winter.

– For your home, clean fireplaces and chimneys, have your furnace cleaned and checked, make sure your yard is clear of summertime items and debris-free, clean your gutters and check your roof for damage. A few hours of your time and a little effort will reduce the effect winter can have around your home dramatically.

– For car owners, its time to have the oil changed, tires rotated and, if necessary, changed to winter tires, to have the transmission or transaxle fluid checked and to have the radiator flushed and refilled. While some of these things may not need to be done right now specifically, having the radiator flushed and filled with winter grade anti-freeze not only flushes out debris accumulated in the water system but ensures your car’s engine is ready for winter as well.

Now is also time to review your insurance policies. Working with a great company like The Schwab Agency in the Colleyville TX area once a year to review your auto insurance, your homeowners insurance including your need for flood insurance as well as policies like personal umbrella coverage means you’re prepared for the future that way as well. Look forward to a great winter by being prepared for it now!
