Preparing your Home for Winter

Winter can bring so many different things. From the holiday season and traveling with the family to frozen roofs and flash frosts. In this article, we will be discussing ways you can prepare for the upcoming winter months and all that it brings.

With each season being more unpredictable than the last, you always need to be prepared for anything. Freezes can occur, even if your state is less likely to see any sort of snow. Outside, any sort of faucet or pipe needs insulation, whether it’s with newspaper or bubble wrap. Hoses should be drained and wrapped up and even brought inside to prevent cracking. Don’t forget about your pool! Keep the pump running constantly. Also protect any vents that are’around your foundation, along with any electrical pumps.

Inside your home you can keep your AC running at a minimum of 55 degrees Fahrenheit, with 68 degrees being the most energy efficient temperature. Under the sinks, open your cabinets to allow hot air to circulate around the pipes. Always ensure faucets are dripping, not running fully. Consider any plants that may freeze, especially tropical ones, and cover them loosely with a blanket.
