Preparing Your Home for Winter

Place insulated covers over all exterior spigots or allow them to drip until the temperature rises above freezing.

Keep the heat on!  Do not shut off the heat if you are out of town for a few days.

Allow interior spigots to drip if they are on exterior walls.

Close crawlspace vents to help keep cold air out.

Check for pipes in the crawlspace or attic that are not insulated that could freeze.

Keep the cabinet doors under the sink open to allow heat in.

Preparing Your Car for Winter

To avoid losing control of your car on icy roads, place a large heavy bag (such as sand or mulch) in your trunk to balance the weight.
