Folks, now is the time to take care of home maintenance tasks before problems start. Those are all great tips and I need to do several of them myself (or ask my sweet husband to do).

I especially recommend cleaning out sediment from faucets and water heaters-this can make a huge difference in water pressure and increase life of the water heater.
