Winterize Your Home

Not sure how to winterize your home? Here are some tips on what to do

Check the main water valve for your home. Make sure it isn’t rusted or stuck so you can turn it on/off if necessary

Store your hoses before the cold temperature come to avoid cracking

For people in mobile homes, pipes freeze easily – grab electric heat tape 

People tend to close off heat to rooms they are not using. Avoid this as pipes in the walls will freeze

Take a walk around your home. If you see any cracks or holes, patch them up

Planning on going away for the holidays? Leave your taps slightly open to avoid your pipes from freezing

A reminder for people thinking of selling their home; listing your home in the winter is great! Your home shows well with all the Christmas decorations and there will be an increase in traffic as people are visiting family and out shopping.
