Many people don’t start on winter preparations until after Labor Day. I’d rather get the job done early so I don’t waste any football weekends working around the house.
We need to start fixing the air conditioners in January to have them in good working shape by hot weather. To be ready for the heating season we need to start working on it now. The same schedule is true at work too.
We need to start fixing doors and windows both at home and at work.
If you are adding insulation to your attic you need to plan it now and get the materials all lined up so when the weather cools just enough to work in the attic you can get’er done.
Some folks are better at remembering to winterize their ride than they are about winterizing their homes.
A little time and effort put in now will save you cash on your heating bills this winter. Pick one of these projects and get started.
· Add a storm door
· Fix up storm windows
· Caulk around the window frames
· Patch that hole in the wall before the hornets move in
· Seal cracks in the basement walls
· Add clear plastic dome covers over your basement window wells.
· Fix or add door sweeps and weather stripping
These low cost “Do It Yourself” projects will pay you back this heating season.
