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.
