Winter Maintenance for Your Home
It’s that time of year again! I know most people dread winter, so I won’t mention how much I love it (!), but one way to make it better is by giving your house an ounce of prevention. For those of us who get overwhelmed by long checklists, I’ve found a few easy tips to save you money and headaches. For the over-achievers among us, I have Bob Vila’s guide to prepping your home for winter… if you get everything on that list done, you deserve a medal.
One tip from me that is important for everyone to keep in mind? Don’t forget to leave the heat on if you’re going away for a few days! You may think you’re saving money on energy costs, but you may be setting yourself up for disaster if your pipes freeze and burst. No one wants to come home to that!
