As the crisp autumn breeze starts to fill the air, it’s a reminder that winter is just around the corner. We understand the importance of keeping your home warm, cozy, and energy-efficient during the colder months. That’s why we're posting some valuable tips to help you prepare your home for winter!
- Check for Drafts: Inspect your windows for drafts and seal any gaps or cracks with weatherstripping or caulk. This helps in keeping the cold air out and warm air in.
- Clean and Inspect Window Frames: Clean the window frames and check for signs of damage, such as rot or mold. Repair or replace damaged frames promptly to prevent further deterioration.
- Inspect Window Seals: Ensure that the seals around your windows are intact. If you notice any gaps or wear, consider resealing the windows to prevent heat loss.
- Clean Gutters and Downspouts: Clogged gutters can lead to water accumulation, which can damage window sills and frames. Regularly clean gutters and downspouts to prevent water-related issues.
Doing this maintenance before the snow starts to fly can make for a warm and cozy winter without any emergency repairs in the ice and snow.
