Cold Weather is Coming
Posted on Jul 18th, 2018


Winter will be here before you know it.  Here’s some ideas that will allow you to survive it in style.

  1. Inspect interiors. Keep warm air in and drafts out by sealing cracks around windows and doors.
  2. Inspect exteriors, too. Clean the gutters and make sure water’s draining properly. Replace any broken or warped roof shingles.
  3. Check appliances. Make sure that heaters and furnaces are running efficiently, and replace air filters. Schedule annual service appointments if necessary.
  4. Clean fireplaces. Call a chimney sweep to remove any soot, or have the wiring checked if yours are electric. Consider replacing aging fireplace doors.
  5. Inspect insulation. If any homes or buildings tend to be chilly, have a contractor or inspector take a look at the insulation and consider adding more.
  6. Trim landscaping. Prune unhealthy limbs that could fall on roofs or cars during winter storms.
