Preparing Your Home for a Winter Storm

 In Fireplace, Home Comfort Tips for Collingwood Shelburne and Orangeville Residents, Maintenance, Winter Tips

Southern Ontario homeowners see their fair share of storms in the winter. From howling winds and feet of snow to -30 degree temperatures, make sure you’re prepared for the storms ahead.

• Get your roof checked to make sure it can withstand the weight of heavy snow
• Get your attic floor insulated to minimize the amount of heat that’s escaping
• Remove tree branches on your property that are dangerously close to your or a neighbour’s and could break with too much weight
• Keep your kitchen and bathroom cabinets open during really cold periods, allowing warm air to circulate around pipes
• Move any furniture that might be blocking your heat vents
• Close your chimney’s flue when you’re not using it
