During the hype of extremely cold weather we sometimes forget we should be preparing our home for freezing temperatures, along with preparing ourselves. We have enclosed some helpful tips on how to prepare your home:
Remove snow and ice from around your gas meter.
Cut back overgrown branches from your home and any electrical wires to prevent iced-over branches from causing damage.
Make sure you know where your emergency shut off valves are for your main water supply to your home, and heating system.
Disconnect attached hoses, shut off outside faucets and drain water from outdoor pipes.
Replace your air filter to ensure maximum efficiency.
Check or replace your humidifier pad.
Check batteries on smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
Open cabinets that have piping on outdoor walls.
Other professional solutions are available, please call our office to inquire.
