Are you Prepared for Winter

10/4/2021 (Permalink)

This time of year brings Football, Cooler Temps, Leaves changing colors and Pumpkin Spice is back in season. Once all of this happens its a great reminder to make sure your home is ready for the freezing temps and snow to start. Here is a list of things to help be ready for the Winter season:

1) Check your homes heating system. Don't get caught in the cold when a simple check up could have noticed something simple to fix. Routine check up on your homes heating and air conditioning can help avoid more costly repairs down the road

2) Seal masonry and hard surfaces. Look for any daylight that may let in cold air and moisture and seal them. 

3) Clean your chimney and order firewood. If you are going to use wood to help heat your home there is probably nothing more important to then making sure your chimney is ready to go. 

4) Clean your Gutters and Drains. If there is an ice build up in your gutters this can lead to ice build up on your roof. This can create future damage on your rood and can also melt the ice into your walls. 

5) Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. This is a good practice to have throughout the year and not just in the winter months.
