Get Your Home Ready For Winter

Here is non exhaustive list of tasks to do in order to get your home winter ready:

Shut down your A/C

Air Conditioners should not be turned on in cold weather as this can damage the unit permanently. To avoid accidentally turning on the A/C turn Off the breaker switch. Also turn off the switch located close to the A/C if present.

Turn Off your External Faucets

  • Turn off the shut-off valve inside the home
  • Open the Outside Faucet to drain any water
  • Drain using drain plug located beside the shut-off valve inside the home
  • Turn off the Outside Faucet


Clear Leaves From Your Lawn, Window Wells and Eavestrough

  • Cleaning Leaves is important for a healthy Lawn
  • If you do not clean Window Wells, this could block water draining and cause basement flooding during thaw.
  • Clogged Eavestroughs cannot work effectively and could lead to multiple issues including foundation issues, basement flooding, damage to the roof, siding, fascia, window frames and more.


Check Doors and Windows for Air Leaks

If you spot any Air Leaks, use products available at local hardware store to seal the Doors and Windows.

Store your lawnmower

  • Clean the Lawnmower. This will avoid premature rusting.
  • Either Remove any gasoline or add stabilizer and fill the reservoir to the top with gasoline


Remove Window Screens

Remove Window Screens and store them safely for the Winter as keeping them on could trap humidity and cause Mould/Mildew. Be careful when handeling and storing Window Screens as they are fragile and could get ripped.


Test Smoke / Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Test, clean and dust your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Also, change their batteries every six months.
