Cold Weather Prep

It is beginning to look a lot like winter!  In order to prepare you and your families for cooler weather, we have created a cold weather checklist! Check it out below and please add any ones we missed in the comments below!

  • Close off unneeded rooms and place towels or rugs over cracks under the doors to keep the warm air in and cool air out
  • If you have a fireplace, make sure you have a good supply of firewood that can keep you and your family warm in the event of power outages
  • Have flashlights and batteries available for blackouts and avoid using candles as they can become a fire hazard
  • Provide shelter for pets and the elderly
  • Bring plants inside to protect them from the elements
  • Use blackout curtains as they prevent heat loss
  • Reverse your ceiling fans to make them spin clockwise and create an updraft that pushes warm air around the room without creating a wind chill
  • Clean the gutters off of your roof as when clogged, rain and melted snow can cause leaks and damage to your home’s infrastructure
  • Maintain tree limbs and brush because wind, rain, snow and ice can cause them to break and fall
