Check out some tips we have put together to keep your home in tip top shape during the cold winter months!
Protect the pipes
Don't turn the head down too much when your out of town
Let faucets drip during cold snaps
Drain water from your outdoor faucts & garden hoses.
Make sure vulnerable pipes are insulated to keep warm.
Heat the house up
Make sure your fireplace is ready to provide warmth
Pay particular attention to having creosote buildup removed from chimneys servicing wood stoves and fireplaces.
Have a professional perform a routine check of your heating system
Check and if needed replace air filters
Seal the Leaks
Make sure the weather stripping is in good condition on all windows and doors.
Clean your gutters
Clogged gutters are more apt to freezing which can cause roof or foundation damage.
Make sure downspouts direct water away from the foundation.
Prepare for a Storm
Stock up on bottled water, non-perishable food, flashlights, first-air supplies, batteries and phone chargers.
