Everything You Need to Prep Your Home for Winter

(Downloadable PDF)

It doesn’t take more than one freezing night to motivate homeowners to get their homes cozied up for the winter, and with temperatures continuing to drop it’s time to start the winterizing tasks you need to stay comfortable. Here are the 4 aspects of your home to check in on to ensure a cozy and efficient home through the bitter winter. 


While it’s usually the least visible, it might be the most essential to keeping your home comfortable in winter. Check your home for the following signs it’s time to replace your insulation:

  • Indoor drafts
  • Damaged insulation
  • Inconsistent temperatures room to room, floor to floor

Air Sealing 

Air sealing is the other side of the coin when it comes to keeping heat inside your home. Winter is when you will really start to feel all of the tiny holes and gaps hidden throughout your house. If you notice cold air coming from attic hatches, basement doors, or you are in the process of upgrading insulation, professional air sealing is a must. 

HVAC Repair & Maintenance

Once you are sure your home is not leaky or underinsulated, and before temperatures get too drastically cold, make sure to give your heating and cooling system a tune-up. This should include your AC unit, to make sure it is ready come spring! Professional maintenance and repair for your heating and cooling system will save you through all seasons. 


The best windows are less energy efficient than the worst walls — and even windows with multiple panes are often subject to poor installation or building shifts that cause cold air to leak in during the winter. If you have had to install plastic over your windows, or your windows are particularly old, a window upgrade will give your home a facelift and improve its efficiency.
