A handy list of tips for winterizing your home:

  • Turn off your outside spigots to prevent build up of water in the pipes
  • Have salt on hand to melt ice on walkways
  • Insulate doors and windows with draft stoppers
  • Have flashlights and spare batteries on hand (no candles, please)
  • Stay warm by making sure you have supplied your heating oil (if applicable) and have lots of spare blankets handy.
  • Always remember to be careful when using space heaters and follow safety instructions carefully.
  • Turn down the temperature on your water heater (saves money, energy, and you from a scalding!)
  • Run ceiling fans in reverse (to push down that rising warm air)
  • Change the furnace filter and get it serviced.
