Winterizing Your Home


Winter will be here before you know it. Is your home ready?

Winterizing your home not only keeps the cold out, but also helps protect it from a wide range of potential winter catastrophes. Even if you live in a milder climate, you should still take steps to get your home ready for longer nights and cooler, wetter weather.

Winterizing brings many benefits to homeowners:

  • Your heating and furnace systems will run more efficiently, saving you money on heating bills. 
  • It protects your home from winter weather.  
  • It keeps pipes from leaking or bursting.  
  • It safeguards against fires and carbon monoxide leaks.  

To keep your home cozy all winter long, follow these winterizing tips and tricks:  

  • Change your furnace filters 
  • Tune up your heating system
  • Turn off valves to exterior water faucets
  • Insulate indoor pipes 
Don’t forget these winterizing steps either:  

  • Seal windows and doors (or install storm windows or doors)
  • Program your thermostat to run cooler during the warmer parts of the day, or those times when you’re not at home.
  • Clean out gutters
  • Repair loose roof shingles
  • Test smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors

Winterizing your home will make it more energy efficient and keep you and your family safe from any winter-related weather or damage.
