8 Ways to Prepare Your Home for Winter

  1. Have your heating system serviced. Look for a heating and air-conditioning contractor that belongs to the Air Conditioning Contractors of Americaand employs technicians certified by the North American Technician Excellence (NATE) program.
  1. Check your roof for damaged or missing shingles.
  1. Caulk around windows and doors. Silicone caulk is best for exterior use because it won’t shrink and it’s impervious to the elements.
  1. Clean your gutters of leaves and other debris.
  1. Add extensions or downspouts to your gutters so the water runs away from your foundation.
  1. Turn off exterior faucets. Undrained water in pipes can freeze, which will cause pipes to burst as the ice expands. Start by disconnecting all garden hoses and draining the water that remains in faucets.
  1. Replace the air filter in your furnace for maximum efficiency.  Slowly pour several gallons of water into the sump pit to see whether the pump turns on. You should do this every few months, but especially after a long dry season or before a rainy one.
  1. Restock winter essentials, such as salt, shovels, antifreeze and ice scrapers.
