Spring Time Chores

The weather may not show it, but spring is just around the corner. In case you need a reminder, it’s time to move the clocks forward one hour on Sunday, March 10th. It’s a good idea to move the time before you go to bed on Saturday night. That way you are “on time” when you awake on Sunday morning!

Also, this is a good time to replace the batteries in the smoke detectors. Please keep in mind that even if the devices are wired into your electrical system, they have a backup battery.

This is good time to replace the furnace and air conditioning filters. Regardless of how they appear, they should be replaced. For the most efficient use of your air conditioner in the summer, make use of ceiling fans. To work correctly make sure they rotate in the proper direction.. For summer, when you look up at the fan it should rotate counter clockwise..
