Winter weather is coming. Your heater or furnace will likely come on numerous times this week. When was the last time you had your furnace checked? Your Winter checklist should include a check of your furnace and space heaters before you fire them up. The good news is that the temperatures will likely not get cold enough to wrap your pipes, but its nice to have the pipe wrap around just in case.
