The kids are back in school, pumpkin spice is everywhere, and the temps are dropping fast….
It’s time to prepare your home for winter in Wisconsin. Here’s a few reminders to take care of now before the snow flies!
Clean all debris and leaves out of your gutters throughout the season to make sure you don’t have clogs backing water up or pooling on your sidewalk/driveway.
Furnace: Check the filters regularly- set a reminder in your phone once a month and buy in bulk so you don’t have to run to the store every time. Plus have a specialist come to your home to do an annual maintenance check and possibly cleaning before any major issues begin.
Landscape:Check around your yard for tree limbs that might have grown over the house roof or might be too close to power lines; make sure to have a professional tree company take care of dangerous work and stay safe!
Insulation:To help stay a bit warmer this winter check all of your doors and windows for drafts. Use weather stripping or caulking to seal around them to help lower energy bills and stay more comfortable in your home. Also, consult an insulation specialist for other areas in your home (attic, basement, exterior walls) and see if you could be saving even more energy and money!
