Fall isn’t quite over yet, but now is the perfect time to start getting your home ready for the impending onslaught of ice and snow that comes with winter. Today, the Carmel home remodeling professionals of Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services, Inc have some tips to help you ensure your home is winter-ready.
Below are some home winterization tips from the Carmel home remodeling experts of Centennial Construction & Remodeling Services.
Keep Out the Cold
Winter’s low temperatures can cause an existing small crack in a window to expand and allow frigid air to work its way into your home. It’s wise to check your home’s exterior and windows for any cracks, chips, or leaks that will allow cold air to seep in and warm air to escape. If your windows already have signs of wear or cracking, you may want to consider a preventative window replacement.
Along with sealing up any potential leaks in your home’s exterior, you’ll want to make sure your house is properly insulated. Adding insulation to your home may cost a few bucks, but you’ll see a huge return on your investment when the winter heating bills start rolling in. You wouldn’t let your loved ones go out in the snow without proper winter gear, so why would you leave your house out in the cold?
Keep Warm Safely
Everyone loves a good fire on cold winter nights, but if you haven’t had your chimney properly cleaned, do not light that first fire of the season. A dirty chimney can easily lead to a house fire, and that would make for an unhappy holiday season. Before firing up the chimney this winter, be cautious and hire a professional chimney sweep to get it in proper working order.
