Winter’s Coming – Will Your Home Be Ready?

Winter
Cooler weather is almost here and so it is time to prepare your home. Where to start you ask.

Here is a list to help:

  • Caulk air leaks around windows and doors
  • Add more insulation if needed. If you can see the ceiling joists in your attic you may need more insulation.
  • Insulate pipes: This will help prevent pipes from freezing and save on your hot water bill.
  • Test your thermostat. It’s been on AC for a long time.  So turn it heat mode and make sure the furnace kicks on and blows warm air. Do this in the afternoon or early evening. Because is has been off for so long dust may have settled in the furnace.  When the heat comes on this dust may burn off and cause your smoke detector to go off.
  • Check all of your smoke detectors are working.
  • Have your furnace inspected by a professional.  Make sure it is in good working order and in shape to last through winter.
  • Inspect and clean your roof and gutters.
