“Fall back” to do list
It’s that time of the year again – when we “fall back” and spend an hour resetting everything from alarm clocks to watches. And whenever you make time changes, you should also check batteries in flashlights, battery operated radios and smoke detectors. And you should check the batteries in all household safety systems like carbon monoxide detectors and back-up batteries in the burglar-alarm control panel. While you’re at it, here are a few more things to do when the time changes – reset your programmable thermostat and change the clocks on VCRs and the lawn sprinkler timer. And don’t forget to change the furnace filter and the direction of ceiling fans.
