Learn how prepping your home for winter can help protect your home from damage and actually save you money this cold season.
Winter Prep for Your Home
Before it begins getting cold, it’s important to inspect your entire home for potential areas of improvement. You will want to look for small cracks in your heating systems venting and un-insulated pipes that may cause a much bigger problem.
It will also be worth checking each window to make sure there is no draft coming through. If you are finding cold air entering your home, it may be worth getting professional help.
The Winter Prep Checklist
- Replace an old thermostat with a new thermostat.
- Have your furnace & water heater serviced to help prevent breakdowns and operate as efficiently as possible.
- Replace batteries in carbon monoxide and smoke detectors.
- Disconnect garden hoses. Make sure gutters and outdoors drains are clear.
