Prepare Your Home for Snow and Ice

With winter here, and arctic cold weather forecast for our area, you can prepare your home for the snow and ice that comes with it, keeping you cozy while even saving you money.

To prep your home for colder weather:

Check for leaks along windows and doors. Caulking or weatherstripping can prevent the heat you pay for from slipping right through any cracks.
Get a professional chimney inspection to prevent a fire. Around 18,000 residential fires are caused by chimneys and other wood-burning units.
Inspect your furnace, cleaning its air ducts and replacing its filter.
Cover bare floors with rugs to prevent heat loss.
Reverse your ceiling fan blades to spin clockwise to push warm air down.
