As we bid farewell to the warmth of autumn and embrace the crisp air of winter, it’s crucial to prepare our homes for the changing seasons. While the shift to colder temperatures might seem gradual, it’s essential to act proactively to prevent any unpleasant surprises or potential damage during the harsh winter months.
Essential Winter Preparations
- Hoses and Outdoor Fixtures: Disconnect all garden hoses and remove any splitters attached to outdoor faucets. This will prevent water from freezing in the pipes and causing potential bursts.
- Outdoor Furniture and BBQ: Store or cover your outdoor furniture and BBQ grills to protect them from the elements. This will extend their lifespan and prevent damage from harsh weather conditions.
- Irrigation, Pool, and Spa: Close down your irrigation system, pool, and spa to prevent any damage from freezing pipes and water lines.
- Gutters: Schedule gutter cleaning for early December, once all leaves have fallen. Clean gutters ensure proper water drainage and prevent ice dams from forming on your roof.
- Handyman Projects: Take advantage of the off-season to tackle those minor repairs and handyman projects that have been lingering on your to-do list.
