The winter is yet half a year away but you have to be ready for it before it comes because when it does then you are late for the dirty work. It will be difficult for installers and repairmen to go to your house and do what should have done half a year prior. Is your heater ready? Will your tap be ready? Do you have your wall fireplace by the living room so you can spend the night with your family, chatting while heating some marshmallows? Are your walls and ceiling stable? Is the roof ready to welcome snow? Is your garage ready to unload snow? If not, why not start now?
