Winter Home Maintenance Tips
Winter is upon us. Whether that means snow, frigid temperatures, or the start of the rainy season, your home could use some prep to ensure it — and you — make it through comfy and cozy.
6 Winter Home Maintenance Tips
Keep out the cold and wet with new seals on doors and windows, as the summer heat can cause the old ones to crack and pull away from the frames.
Did you know you can squirt foam insulation behind light switch and outlet covers? Every little bit helps!
A programmable one that will adjust to your schedule is ideal, but if you’re not ready for one of those, then set the temperature to 68 degrees — the most energy-efficient number — and forget it.
Heaters dry out your skin and nasal passages, leaving you prone to itchiness and colds. Plus, wet air is warmer air. (Really.)
5. Water Heater
Your water heater should be wrapped in an insulated blanket so it doesn’t have to work so hard, which will save money for you over the season.
Open the blinds and curtains and let the sun in! Nature’s furnace will help warm up your home at no cost.
