While it can be easy to get caught up in preparation for the holidays near the end of the year, it’s equally important to prepare for the winter – especially if you live in an area impacted by colder temperatures and inclement weather with heavy snow and freezing rain.
Much like checking your A/C before a hot summer can save you from a breakdown in the middle of a heat wave, there are steps you should take to winterize your home and property ahead of the winter season. In addition to helping save on heating expenses, these steps may also prevent something from breaking down and potentially costing more to repair than it would have to maintain. Additionally, it can take longer to get a repair person scheduled to visit during the holidays – leaving you and your family in the cold longer than usual.
To help prepare for the winter, we have created this handy graphic to aid as a checklist for providing seasonal maintenance to your home, while also hopefully helping to make your energy and heating usage as efficient as possible.
