Baby It's Cold Outside

 

The winter has come and with it comes snow and frigid temperatures. This passed few weeks have already been colder than normal, and winter has just started. To avoid any weather related problems caused by the extreme cold, here are some tips to make sure that your home is prepared for the winter.

  • Insulate all exposed plumbing pipes to prevent burst pipes                                Pipe bursts are a serious problem every winter, especially when it's this cold outside. Keep sinks open to allow dripping and allow continuous fluid flow through pipes to prevent freezing.

  • Drain water from outdoor faucets and sprinkler systems to keep those pipes from freezing                                                                                                                       

    Disconnect and store outdoor hoses; cover outdoor faucets with foam insulators.

  • Change your furnace filter at the start of the season and then every two to four months

  • Filters get dirty much more quickly if your home is dusty or if you have furred or feathered pets. Clogged or dirty filters are less efficient, which means your home might not warm up properly.

  • Seal Windows and Doors                                                                                       Gaps around windows and doors can make it tough to keep your house warm in winter. Caulk around windows and install weather stripping around doors as needed. This minor and inexpensive task can help you save on heating costs. 

  • Stock Up on Supplies 

    With extreme weather conditions like this, power outages are almost inevitable. Stock up on non-perishables and other supplies you may need such as flashlights and batteries. Board games are great for keeping kids occupied when there is nothing else to do.
