Make sure all windows and doors close and seal correctly to keep out the cold and windy drafts that could skyrocket your heating costs.

Have your furnace inspected before that snow flies. Replace or clean your furnace filter depending on what your furnace calls for.

Replace all batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Your home will be sealed up with the heat going daily.

If you have a fireplace or wood burning stove, have it inspected and cleaned. Remember preventive maintenance will save you a bundle and also from a disaster.

Last thing is to clean out your gutters or have them cleaned. Ice dams and such can build up and cause roof leaks. Again basic maintenance can stop costly damage to your most valuable investment, your home.
