Change Furnace Filters

Winterize Your A/C and Water LinesThis one's really easy, and it will even save you a few pennies next summer, too: Simply drain any hoses and air conditioner pipes, and make sure you don't have excess water pooled in equipment. If your a/c has a water shutoff valve, go ahead and turn that off.
Turn Down Your Water Heater
Install Storm Doors and Windows
Put Up Some Plastic
Use Caulking and Weatherstriping
