I agree with what has been said above.

Make sure you do the stupid easy stuff like replacing furnace filters.

If you need new appliances, Black Friday is a good time to buy.

Get a roof rake for winter. Ice damns suck

My parents had an awful ice dam 5 or 6 years ago. They probably had over a foot of ice and it eventually leaked through the roof and stained their ceiling. It cost them a fortune to have the dam steamed off the roof.

After that, my dad installed heater wires on the roof to melt the ice dams and hasn’t had an issue since. MUCH less work too.
