Preparing Your Home For Winter Weather

Are you—and your home—ready for the coming winter weather? Get prepared with this guide!

Can you believe it’s already November? Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, with the holiday season following right on its heels (thanks, Black Friday). That means that the coming months are only going to get busier.

Before the hectic time of year kicks into full gear, it’s important you deal with your other to-dos. Specifically, you need to think about preparing your home for winter. To help you do just that, here are a few pointers.

  • In case you missed it, experts a predicting that a monster El Niño is coming our way, complete with lots of rain. You might have been neglecting your gutters years into our drought, but its important you clean them out now. If you don’t, you could be left with water spilling everywhere you don’t want it – including right into your home.
  • There are some things you just shouldn’t try to DIY. Inspecting your furnace and chimney are a couple of them. Call out professionals to take a look at these systems before you’ll be using them this winter. It’s much better to deal with the small hassle of a routine inspection now than waiting to have a pro come out and fix your breakdown on one the coldest days of the year!
  • You want to keep warm air in this winter. Keep your house cozy and your heating costs down by checking the seals around your house. If you can fit a nickel in the gap between your windows/doors and your home, re-caulk those areas.

In addition to taking on these tasks, you also need to review your California homeowners insurance. If you’d like to do that with an expert who can advise you on the proper amount of coverage for your family’s needs, contact Stromsoe Insurance Agency today!
