Ready Your Home for Winter

Even though we're already halfway through December, winter really doesn't being until January in New England! Thus, you still have plenty of time to winterize your home! Here is our beloved winter to-do list:

  1. Put away or cover your outdoor furniture.
  2. Get rid of drafts. (Caulk around winters and doors.)
  3. Tune up your heating system.
  4. Prevent ice dams (a weatherization contractor can identify and fix air leaks and inadequate insulation in your home's attic that can lead to ice dams.)
  5. Clean the gutters.
  6. Turn off exterior faucets.
  7. Repair demaged sidewalks, driveways and steps.
  8. Prune trees and/or shrubs.
  9. Call a chimney sweep.
  10. Stock up on winter essentials. (Salt/ice melt.)
