Hello there!

I would like to know some general guidelines for winterizing a home. I live in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, so it doesn't get blizzard-cold here, but cold enough to prepare my house, just in case. I would specifically like to know if I should do anything for my built in lawn sprinkler system. And do I have to do anything to my refrigerated air conditioning unit? How do I prepare my heating system?

Thanks for any hints! I'm a first time homeowner and I need some good general advice!

As a part of regular maintenance, you should have you Heat Pump checked every year to make sure that it is running well. There is only one thing you can do and that is to check the filter and change it on a regular basis. Lawn sprinkler systems are usually below the frost line so the lines will not freeze, but I am not an expert in this feild so you may want consult with whomever.
