We have had some pretty cold weather lately.  Here are some tips and tricks to keep your home safe and comfortable this winter season.

How to Keep Your Home Warm

  • Inspect fireplaces and chimneys to ensure they are clean.
  • Keep blinds and drapes closed when windows are not in direct sunlight.
  • Have your furnace inspected to ensure there aren’t any hazardous cracks in the heat exchanger. Install a clean air filter and check the thermostat to ensure it is working correctly.
  • Insulate exterior wall outlets and switches with foam seals.
  • Make sure no cold air is entering your home through exterior cracks by caulking any holes.

How to Avoid Frozen Pipes

  • Disconnect garden hoses and drain them.
  • Use foam covers to cover outside faucets.
  • Turn off sprinklers and blow compressed air through the lines to drain them.
  • Keep garage doors closed
  • Insulate exposed pipes with foam insulation.
  • Keep cabinet doors open under sinks to allow for air flow.
  • When temperatures are extremely low, allow for the faucet furthest away from your main water line to drip.
  • Know where your water main shut-off valve is in case of emergency.
