Minnesota Residents

Due to our large snow fall (up to 20" of snow) in some area, and the blizzard like wind of snow drift of 6' in some areas, please check your exhaust pipes outside of your home.

Common with homes that has 90% furnace that has plastic PVC pipes out the side of the homes, and manufacturers homes (roof vent) with the sealed furnaces.

I'm seeing people posting stuff on Facebook saying they don't have heat.

Also, we are going to be seeing a few days of sub-zero temps, change out your air filters too!

Stay warm my friends.

Good tip. I saw the same thing on the local news station. Also check your gas meter and the regulator vent attached to the meter. Or If you have propane, make sure your regulator is clear.

Good Tips Guys

Really good & important tips.
I know you are used to snows like that but here on the mid-atlantic we rarely get them. Last winter we did get blasted & I don't know how many service calls I handled over the phone for exactly those problems.

Here is a photo that it looks like at work in the garden department!

Hope no one needs landscaping blocks soon!
