Winterization

Check out these simple tips for keeping heat inside your home where it belongs.

Winterization Tips

Remove leaves, sticks and other debris from gutters to melting snow and ice can flow freely. This can prevent ice damming.

 

Repair steps and handrails. Broken stairs and banisters can become lethal when covered with snow and ice.

Provide a reliable back-up power source. In the event of a power outage, continuous power will keep your home warm and help prevent frozen pipes as well as help if you have a battery operated sump-pump. Consider purchasing a portable generator and follow installation and maintenance steps to ensure safety.

 

Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and make sure they are working properly. Not only do residential fires increase in the winter, but so does carbon monoxide poisoning.
