Winter is Surely on its Way to the Tri-State Area!
We know, we know, winter may be your least favorite season (just like it is ours) BUT alas, it is on its way no matter how we feel about it. So that leaves a few things for us to do before the snow starts & it's too late for us to prepare our home in the ways we need to.
What Does That Mean for You?
What does this mean for you? We’re glad you asked!
It will mean something different depending on what kind of home you live in, the amenities your home has & how much you need to do based on your own life & living situation!
For example, if you live in a condo, your winter prep will look different than someone that lives on a farm or a three story home! This list is a broad stroke list & does not include *everything* homeowners can prepare but a short get started list. As always, if you have questions, concerns, or need help getting these tasks checked off your winter prep list, contact us. We’re here to help!
Preparing Your Home For Winter:
If you are a homeowner, this is for you! We all know the feeling of finding out your furnace quit working overnight, or a pipe busted in the middle of one of the coldest days of the year, & it’s not a good feeling. That’s why we recommend taking on a few tasks a week (if doable) to make sure your home is ready for when the cold weather sets in.
Our list includes but is not limited to:
-Check your windows & doors for drafts
-Clean out your outside water spigots
-Make sure your pipes are insulated
-Get your chimney cleaned out
-Get your furnace serviced
-Switch your ceiling fans
-Cut back tree branches
-Clean out your gutters
-Get your roof inspected if its been a while
Like we said, this is a broad stroke list. Make sure you are doing your own research when it comes to what is best for your home & its overall health for the upcoming winter.
