Simple Tips to Prepare your Home for Winter


Simple Tips to Prepare your Home for WinterWinter is coming, which means it's time to complete a few important tasks around your home to prevent problems brought on by cold weather. In Albuquerque, which sits more than a mile above sea level, it isn't uncommon to experience frigid temperatures and the occasional snowfall. The following ideas will help you keep yourself and your family warm and protect your home from damage.

Roof & Gutter Maintenance

Many Albuquerque homes have pueblo-style and flat roofing, both of which can trap water if debris is present. Any water that can't drain on the roof may freeze, resulting in extra weight on the house and increased moisture. Make sure that your gutters and roof are clear of any debris, such as pine needles and leaves.

Heating System Tune Up

If you're a DIYer then you'll want to add a heating system tune up to your to do list before the cold really sets in. Inspecting the parts and replacing any filters will ensure your furnace is ready to pump up the heat when called upon.

Clear Vents

In addition to checking the mechanicals of the heating system you will want to clean out your home's vents to maximize airflow. There are a few tools available to make this task easier, but when doing so always wear a mask so you don't inhale excessive amounts of dust.

Cover Hose Faucets

On the exterior of your home be sure to cover any hose faucets with proper materials and if equipped, utilize the shut off valves to exterior water outlets. Any water in the pipes could freeze, causing burst pipes.

Prepare to Clear Snow

Albuquerque gets an annual snowfall of about 10 inches. While this isn't much, it can make it difficult to get out of your driveway or up your walkway. Having a snowblower or other equipment available will help keep your property maneuverable.
