Is Your Home Ready for Winter?

Winter will soon be here...time to make sure your skis, snowboards and boots are ready for the snow. But, before you hit the slopes, you'll want to make sure your home is also ready for the upcoming temperature plunge.

Here are a few weather-wise tips for preparing your home for winter.

• Turn off outside water lines and drain hoses
• Repair all broken windows, exterior doors and walls
• Have your furnace/boiler/wood stove professionally inspected and change any existing filters
• Install insulation sleeves on exposed interior pipes
• Check your fireplace for cracks, creosote build-up and remaining ashes
• Keep anything flammable at least 3 feet away from fireplaces and space heaters
• Cover patio furniture and grill
• Place a rough-textured doormat outside each entrance 
• Run heat tape on the edge of a roof or the bottom of your gutter to melt ice
