It’s Cold Out – How to Withstand Winter

winterDuring these winter months, the temperature will continue to drop and if you haven’t taken care of your Fall Maintenance around the house yet, its time to get on it. While you are at it, add on this list of 10 tips to prepare your home for the even colder months ahead. One very important tip for your home in the Fall and Winter months is clearing out the gutters. If you are in a rental property, before you climb up the ladder, check with your landlord to see if they have a professional vendor that will help take care of that task. Additionally, it is a good time to remove or wrap outdoor hoses and seal up any spots that could bring the cold air into the house, remember to check the attic and crawl space, along with windows and doorways. While we are turning up the heat, the furnace is likely working overtime these days, so this is a good time to replace your furnace filters (it should be done every 3-4 months).
