Here are some useful tips that will help you to get your house ready for winter.


1. Inspect Whole House
The first and most important thing to do to get your house ready for winter is to inspect it thoroughly. There may be some areas that need more work than others. Look for any possible renovation work, maintenance and improvements. Check windows if they are broken, close any open areas that can affect heating system in the rooms and living areas. A detailed inspection will make further work easy.

2. Tune Up Heating System
After inspecting the house and finding areas that need maintenance, you should head for tuning up the heating system. Check the tools and instruments if you have that are needed for the heating system. It should be done with great care as you will face severe cold weather and any issue in cold may cause problems. Hire a professional who can repair and install the heating system properly.

3. Clean Gutters
Cleaning gutters for winter is one of the most important things to do to get the house ready for winter. Any residues or items that can prevent the water flow will be harmful. They block the flow and water may pop up out of gutter and other areas. In winter, it becomes extremely difficult to deal with water and gutter issues.

4. Secure Outdoor Water Sources
The drain pipes, hoses and pumps may get frozen in the winter and they may burst. The experts and professional service providers recommended house owners to take care of outdoor water sources. Perform tests and check if there is any issue that can be fixed quickly. If any of pipes or drain source stops working during cold, you are in trouble and may spend more than you could have spent if you repaired that before cold started.

5. Check your flooring
Outdoors, the lawns and sitting areas in the lawn become more important when winter arrives because you don’t have enough space to enjoy sunlight. So check the laws and remove any equipment, dust, dirt, garbage and make sure it is clean and nice.
Indoors, it is advised to use in-floor heating to keep things warm. If you have laminate flooring, make sure there is enough heating indoors to avoid them curling, expansion or other damages.



6. Service Furnace and Chimney
Fireplaces, heating systems and chimneys are the most important part of a house in winter. You should inspect the furnaces and chimneys to find out any possible issues. It should be done before the winter goes severe. You will not have enough time then to repair and take care of damaged or broken furnaces and chimneys. Hire a good service provider and get them serviced.

7. Work on Plants and Trees
The plants and trees within the house need regular care. If you don’t have enough space where you can get sunlight and the trees are preventing it, you can trim them. But never cut the trees. Work smartly. Trees are life and they are important part of the human environment. So go for any possible trimming instead of cutting them down. Plants should also be trimmed to gain maximum sunlight during winter.

Happy winter!
