Replace your furnace and air conditioning filters so that your HVAC system is energy efficient. Some HVAC companies will do this service for a small cost.Smoke Detectors. Keep your family safe by testing your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Put new batteries in your alarms in the spring and in the fall.Caulking and Windows. Check the caulking around doors and windows as well as kitchen and bathroom fixtures for holes or cracks. Replace the caulking as needed. Add window treatments, like plantation shutters, to enhance the energy efficiency of your windows. Open up each window to make sure that they can freely move.2.
