NJ Winter Home Prep

1 . Prepare your hearth for fire 
Make sure your fireplace and chimney are in good condition and safe.

2.  Seal the windows 
Check around your home for air leaks, especially near windows and doors. Don’t let your energy bill cover things that can be prevented with a little extra insulation or new windows.

3.  Clear out the gutters
Have gutters cleared of any debris. Backed up gutters will allow water to pool, freeze, and crack your gutters, or spill on your house causing damage.

4.  Prepare for winter storms
Always have a fully-stocked emergency kit at hand for blizzards that can keep you stuck in your home for a couple days.

5.  Don’t forget about heating maintenance 
Have a professional check your heating system and ensure it’s in good working order before you turn it on.

6.  Pad your pipes 
A small frozen pipe can cause big household damage if it bursts. Make sure your pipes are checked and winterized.

7. Organize your garage  
Organize your garage by putting away any summer items and bringing any winter necessities―shovels, snow blowers, skis and sleds―to the front.
