Winterizing Your Home

Harsh Connecticut winters emphasize the importance of preparing the home for the winter season ahead. We want you to spend your winter surrounded by family, not worrying about house problems and insurance claims. Gathered are some helpful tips for winterizing your home:

  • Start from the top down. This means tending to the roof first. Your roof should be inspected by a professional roofer to ensure that no loose shingles are going to invite water or snow into your home.
  • Before you head into the home to conduct winter home maintenance, make sure to clear your downspouts and gutters of debris and leaves. This will allow water to flow without getting obstructed.
  • When it comes to winterizing the inside of your home, heat is your main concern. Therefore, if you have not had an HVAC specialist check out your heating system in a while, now is the perfect time to do so. Likewise, make sure the weather stripping on your doors and windows are secure so that the heat coming from your heating system can best be utilized.
  • There is no better time than now to start de-cluttering your house. This will allow you to start the season off fresh and without all your summer toys lying around.
