Preparing your Home for Winter

winter thermometer

When winter winds blow, you will feel more comfortable if you have prepared your home for the winter weather. Here are a few things you should do before the cold weather arrives:

OUTSIDE YOUR HOME

  • Clean eaves troughs and downspouts to ensure proper drainage
  • Repair damage on the outside of your home, including cracks or storm damage
  • Caulk window trim and door frames
  • Check your roof and flashing for repairs
  • Install weather stripping on exterior doors and windows
  • Winterize your pool or hot tub
  • Turn off the water supply to outdoor taps after the taps have been left open to drain completely. Leave the taps in the open position until the spring
  • Always clear snow away from the foundation of your house

INSIDE YOUR HOME

  • Check heat-duct and water-pipe insulation
  • Inspect any washing machine and dishwasher hoses for cracks or leaks, and clean the filters
  • Learn the location of, and how to use, the water shut-off valve
  • Have the furnace and air conditioner professionally serviced annually
  • Have any chimneys cleaned annually and repaired as needed
