This morning we all felt it! Brace yourselves, winter is coming! To get prepared we have made a short list of some tips for winterizing your home this year!
-Clean or replace your furnace air filters each month during the heating season.
-If you are going away for the winter, for any duration of time, you must contact your broker to confirm you are meeting your insurance companies guidelines to ensure proper coverage is still in place.
-To help allow for good air circulation in your attic, ensure it has proper ventilation, so that hot air doesn’t get trapped in the rafters, melting the bottom layer of the snow on the roof. This is also a good time to confirm with your broker that your policy covers for ICE DAMMING as not all policies cover that!
-As a homeowner, make sure you know where to find your water shut off valve, in case of emergencies quick action could potentially save you from major damage to your home.
