"TIP OF THE DAY"
Before you turn the heat up, keep the cold out by winterizing your home.
Taking a few simple steps to prepare your home will help your family stay warm, keep your water flowing, and it may even save you some money.
- Winterize your home by insulating walls and attics, caulking and weather-stripping doors and windows, and installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic.
- Wrap pipes with insulation or newspapers and plastic, and allow faucets to drip or trickle during cold weather to avoid freezing. Learn how to shut off water valves if a pipe bursts.
- Clear rain gutters; repair roof leaks and cut away tree branches that could fall on a house or other structure during a storm.
- Maintain heating equipment and chimneys by having them cleaned and inspected every year.
This is just a sampling of the home and other winter preparedness tips available, to view more check out the America’s PrepareAthon! How to Prepare for a Winter Storm guide.
