How To Prepare Your Home For Winter 61aa80a9468de

Shut Down & Insulate Your Outdoor Pipes

If you haven’t already, it’s time to shut off your outdoor pipes by shutting down faucets and draining water out of the pipes. After all, you won’t be spending much time watering your grass this winter, and if you fail to turn off your outdoor water, your pipes may freeze and burst or crack. If you have exposed pipes around your home’s exterior, it’s important to make sure they are insulated before the cold weather hits. Our team at Climate Mechanics can help — call us today!

Identify Your Water Shutoff Valve

Separate from your outdoor water valve is your home’s main water shutoff valve. The only reason you may want to use the main shutoff valve is to prevent your home’s water pipes from freezing on extremely cold nights in Cherry Hill. This valve stops the flow of water throughout your home, and it can be difficult to turn without the help of pliers. To make it easier and to avoid the risk of damage, you can invest in a key that can turn your home’s water off more easily.

Prep Your Furnace & Change The Filter

Before winter is fully upon us, make sure that your furnace is ready to start keeping your home warm day-in and day-out. Prep your furnace by vacuuming or dusting it out and removing any debris that may have built up during the summer. You should also change its HVAC filter to make sure that the airflow through your home is as clean as possible.

Adjust Your Thermostat

Finally, when it comes to winterizing your furnace for the cold winter months, you’ll want to make sure not only that your furnace is ready but that your thermostat is programmed according to your family’s schedule. If no one will be home during the day, you can keep the temperature low and raise it in the evening while everyone is home.
