I'm thinking about shutting down my weekend
house for 3 months this winter. What are the
steps I need to take? In terms of draining
pipes, etc. Is this information spelled out anywhere? What do I need to watch for when
closing down a house? Thanks.

Everything. Oil furnance. Hot water heater.
Plumbing. Water softener. Gas stove. Basically, I'm trying to find one resource that lists what needs to be done to shut down a house.

If oil furnace,...Ask after they're done what the over fire draft is??? If he looks at you with a confused look,... The Check out was not done properly....
