It seems that no matter how much the people I was with and I prep for winter, the people I was with and I are never ready when it arrives. The two of us have updated all of the windows in the house, however multiple. Every year, the people I was with and I make sure to check the weather stripping around the doors plus windows, plus every year, there is at least multiple that needs to be updated. My hubby will clean the chimney plus check the heat bricks inside the fireplace. Last year, the people I was with and I didn’t even use the fireplace, yet this year, the chimney was filthy plus she had to update 3 of the bricks. You can’t buy heat bricks individually, you need to buy an entire case of them. In the process of increasing those heat bricks, she knocked over the glass screen that goes in front of the fireplace, plus the people I was with and I had to update it. This is a specially made glass enclosure plus I had to drive fifty miles to the fireplace parts store to have the glass made. The two of us had a lot of spots where the breeze was blowing in plus the people I was with and I found out that the insulation in the basement was torn plus compressed. That’s when the people I was with and I found out the people I was with and I had an infestation of mice. They had made a nest right behind the hot water heater. After evicted the mice, she decided to clean the gas furnace. The gas furnace worked perfectly, plus all she had to do was to change the air filter. She said that her winterization was done, because she had finally found something that was going to be giving us some heat this winter, plus not detracting from it.
