It may still be the fall season, but if you want to be cozy inside your home all winter, now is the time to winterize. Prepare your house for colder weather with these key tips.

Get an Energy Audit

An energy audit will uncover problem areas in your home and point you to the best upgrades for improving comfort and efficiency.

Insulate & Air Seal

90% of homes are under-insulated. Having an insulation contractor re-insulate and air seal your home will keep valuable heat indoors and eliminate air leaks.

Seal & Insulate Ductwork

Ductwork can develop leaks over time, wasting energy all winter. Seal and insulate your ductwork so valuable heat goes where it should.

Update Your Heating System

If you’re relying on an old furnace or boiler for heat, upgrade to an energy efficiency unit that runs on natural gas. If you have hard-to-heat areas in your home, install a high efficiency mini split for targeted heating.

Check Your Gutters

Here’s one you can do yourself: clean your gutters, roof, and downspouts of any debris (especially after most leaves have fallen).

Drain Outdoor Faucets

Another DIY tip: drain outdoor faucets to prevent water damage from frozen pipes. Don’t forget to turn the water off using the shutoff valves for these faucets.

Test Smoke Detectors

Winter comes with many fire risks. Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to ensure they are operating properly.
