It’s starting to feel like winter. Now that the temperatures have dropped, everyone is looking for ways to stay warm and cozy at home. Here are a few tips to help protect your home on cold winter days and nights.
Cold Weather Home Protection:
- Insulate Your Exposed Plumbing Pipes – Exposed plumbing pipes in your walls, attic and basement tend to run a bit cooler. On cold winter nights where the temperature drops below freezing, these plumbing pipes can freezes, expand and burst, leaving you with a plumbing mess. Keep your pipes well insulated to help prevent freezing. You can even open the kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warm, heated air to circulate throughout your home better.
- Inspect Your Fireplace – Fireplaces may feel like they’re keeping your home warm, but they’re actually a common place for drafts. Make sure that your flue is closed when it’s not in use.
- Add Spray Foam Insulation – Many homes in the Northeastern US are not well insulated. Some have no insulation at all! This can leave you with an unevenly heated home, high energy bills, and cold rooms on winter days. Spray foam insulation fills all of the gaps and cracks in the walls, floors and ceilings of your home. This ensures that when you heat your home, the heated air stays inside – keeping you and your family warm.
