Winter Home Preparation Tips
Have your chimney cleaned
Cuddling up in front of a roaring fire when the weather outside is frightful is a part of winter in Colorado. Before your first fire of the year, it is vital to get the chimney cleaned to lower the risk of a chimney fire.
Get a furnace clearing and tuneup
In order for your furnace to work at maximum efficiency, it is essential to get it cleaned and tuned up. This is a proactive way to avoid a breakdown in the dead of winter.
Make sure your snow blower is working
Don’t wait until the first snowfall to ensure your snow blower is operational. If it is not working as it should, you will have the time to repair it yourself or take it in for repair.
Load up on sand and salt
Head to your local home improvement store or warehouse for bags of salt and sand. When ice is an issue, salt and sand are a big help in allowing your vehicle to get a grip on the driveway. Get an extra bag to keep in your vehicle.
Clean your gutters
Fall is very hard on gutters. When the leaves fall from the trees, they can clog up the gutters and affect the gutter’s ability to drain correctly. Installing grates over the gutter to allow the water through but not the leaves is a good strategy.
