As temperatures drop, it's important to prepare your home to ensure your family stays safe and comfortable. Even in Florida, where it's warm most of the year, cold snaps can happen. Here are ten ways to prepare your home for the colder temperatures:
Insulate your pipes to prevent them from freezing and bursting. Check out our video here.
Check your windows and doors for drafts and seal them with weather stripping or caulking.
Have your heating system inspected by a professional to ensure it's in good working order.
Change your air filters to improve air quality and efficiency.
Reverse the direction of your ceiling fans to push warm air down.
Replace old or damaged insulation in your attic to keep your home warm.
Drain and store outdoor hoses to prevent freezing and damage.
Stock up on warm blankets and extra layers to keep you and your family cozy.
Keep your home at a consistent temperature to avoid drastic temperature changes that can damage your home.
Consider an electric space heater or fireplace.
