4 Ways to Winterize Your New Home
New homes in Copper Canyon TX require very little maintenance compared to older homes. Modern building methods and materials create a superior structure and a more comfortable living environment year-round. Still, there are a few things you should do to get your new home ready for winter.
- Buy seasonal supplies. Even though Texas doesn’t get the same winter weather as northern states, you should still be prepared in case of snow or ice. Keep a bag of sidewalk de-icer in the garage along with a stiff broom and even a snow shovel. Also consider purchasing a generator and a few gallons of gas for backup power. Read the generator’s instruction manual for safety guidelines before you use it.
- Have your furnace and fireplace checked and serviced yearly starting when they are a year old. Change the furnace filter regularly during heating season.
- Reverse the spin direction on your ceiling fans. They should turn clockwise in the winter. This will push warm air down toward the floor. Look for the switch on the side of the fan housing. Make sure the fan is turned off when you adjust it.
- Drain and turn off outdoor faucets, hoses and sprinklers. Put hoses away for the winter.
