Remember to set your clocks forward one hour when daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. March 9.

The AllStateBlog recommends using the occasion to performing other seasonal home maintenance, including:

  • Replace smoke/carbon monoxide alarm batteries.
  • Flip or rotate your mattress.
  • Schedule a furnace inspection.
  • Call a chimney sweep.
  • Drain your water heater. (Energy.gov suggests doing this every three months.)
