First Day of Winter: Winter Storm Prep!
December 21st marks the first day of winter! Upstate NY sometimes has unpredictable weather, we can be surprised by some mild weather and the sun shining….but for the part we know we will see some of those freezing temperatures and Winter storms! It is important to have your home and business ready!
Take a look at some of these Winter Storm Safety Tips from the American Red Cross:
- Winterize your vehicle and keep the gas tank full. A full tank will keep the fuel line from freezing.
- Insulate your home by installing storm windows or covering windows with plastic from the inside to keep cold air out.
- Maintain heating equipment and chimneys by having them cleaned and inspected every year.
- If you will be going away during cold weather, leave the heat on in your home, set to a temperature no lower than 55° F.
Not following these tips for your property could potentially wreck havoc on your winter season from broken pipes to chimney fires!
