Winterize Your Home

There is no question that preparing for the rigors of winter weather can seem like a distraction. But this is a job that will save you money and save energy at the same time. There are many things you can do to prepare for winter and this website will give you details on what to do and how to do it.

Doors allow you to go in and out of a house, but they also allow cold drafts to enter and heat to escape. Keep your doors closed to the cold!

Windows are great for air circulation in the summer, but the last thing you want is cold air circulating into the house in winter.

Plumbing is not so much an access-way for air, but is rather a vulnerable system in your house - vulnerable to cold weather that is.

Outdoors is a place where you need to protect plants and seal up entry-ways to the house from the exterior.

Your heat system is a place where inefficiencies can cost you money.

Insulation is a big job, but it will pay dividends in the long run.

Emergencies, we don't like to think about power outages and other problems hitting us at this vulnerable time, but they can happen. It is best to be prepared.
