As the seasons change and the air thickens with the cooler temperatures you are not the only one that needs to get ready to face the chill. Looking after your home during the winter is essential and will ultimately keep you warmer, safer and more comfortable.
GET YOUR GARDEN IN SHAPE
Keep the family safe and avoid any accidents by making sure to trim and overbearing trees that may be towering over your roof, cars and windows.
Throw together an emergency kit that will keep you full and comfortable for around three days. Throw in extra blankets, candles and food items in case the weather gets the better of you. Better to be safe than sorry as they say. Don’t forget about your pets either, they feel the cold more than we do.
NO MORE CLUTTERED GUTTERS
Clean your gutters from leaves and any other items that may get stuck in there. It may prove to be freezing if you don’t act in time. The cost and energy of cleaning out any formed ice is not worth it compared to preventing it from happening at all.
WINTER WINDOWS AND DOORS
Be smart and make sure to install storm doors and windows. By doing this you can save up to half on your electricity bill this winter.
