Tips To Winterize Your Home

Outside Your Home:

  • Clear gutters from fallen leaves and debris
  • Buy salt and a snow shovel now so you have it before the storms hit
  • Seal up any cracks or holes within stonework or siding
  • Disconnect hoses from outside faucets and turn off the water

Inside Your Home:

  • Change air filters, check windows and doors to make sure they are properly sealed
  • Check your doors and windows for any gaps where cold air can flow into the house
  • Give your heating system a test run to ensure everything is working properly
  • Clean out your chimneys or woodstoves if you have them
  • Add or replace any electrical outlet plate to make sure no cold air is coming in from the outside

Protecting your pets from the cold:

  • Your family pet may already have a natural coat but it is a great idea to buy another one for those super cold days
  • If you have an outdoor cat, try to transition them into an indoor cat for winter
  • Keep your pet’s paws clean and trim of any excess fur
