Living in Michigan, you know how winter works. Winter is our longest season and we even started early with snow falls in November. Now, us Michiganders are looking at frigid, snowy weather for the next 5-6 months (maybe longer). You can be prepared for winter by bundling up in warm clothes and boots. But is your home prepared to face the bitter cold and winter weather for the next 5-6 months?

Here are Some Tips to Prepare your Home for Winter Weather:

  • Insulate walls and attics
  • Install a door sweep
  • Weather-strip doors and windows
  • Clean out gutters
  • Disconnect and drain outside hoses
  • Ensure your furniture isn’t blocking your home’s heating vents
  • Repair roof leaks
  • Remove tree branches that could get weighed down with snow/ice and fall on your house
  • If you have a fireplace, close the damper
  • Set the temperature manually and leave it
  • Seal furnace ducts
  • Insulate hot water pipes and hot water heater
  • Avoid ice dams by ventilating your attic and insulating the attic floor
