7 Items To Include On Your Winter Prep Checklist For Your Home

Beautiful historic home in winter with snow

December 21st is the first day of winter, and whether you live in cooler temps or have more balmy weather conditions, it’s a good idea to perform an annual review of your home to avoid any unwanted surprises. Check out these 7 tips to include on your Winter Prep Checklist. 

Plus, you’re eligible for a Free Mortgage Checkup and extra savings of up to $1,000 using your AmeriWallet Benefits.** If you are in the market to buy a home, earn additional savings with credits of 0.5% on the new home purchase price when you work with our free Real Estate Concierge, NewZip.1 

7 Winter Prep Checklist Tips: 

House icon orange with #1Trim your Trees
To keep your home safe from inquisitive critters that could enter your humble abode, it’s a good idea to keep branches and limbs trimmed, so they are away from your rooftop. This helps with maintaining a pleasing visual aesthetic to your landscaping too.

House icon orange with #1Light The Way
With less daylight during the holiday season and beyond, you’ll want to ensure your lighting is in working order with all bulbs burning brightly for safety, security and to show off the brilliant glow of your home.

House icon orange with #1Close The Gaps
Break out the flashlight and inspect for outside cracks where both insects and water can infiltrate. Fill with caulking or plastic foam filler for any larger openings you may encounter. 

House icon orange with #1Chimney Sweep
If you plan to enjoy the soothing presence of a wood-burning fire, make sure to have your fireplace cleaned of debris and the structure inspected for durability.

House icon orange with #1Feel The Heat
There is nothing worse than freezing in your own home. On average, heaters last 12 to 15 years and even longer, depending on how well they have been maintained. Stay comfy and cozy by changing out your filters regularly, and having annual inspections.

House icon orange with #1Smoke And Carbon Monoxide Detectors
More house fires happen in the winter, so it’s essential to make sure these life-saving devices are in working order and that the batteries are still charged. 

House icon orange with #1Let It Snow
We just love the white winter snow and the beauty it creates, along with the joys of sledding, snow angels, and snowmen. With all of the fun comes clean-up and the ability to leave your home. Be prepared, and make sure your snowblower, shovel, salt, and icebreaker are ready to go.

Looking for savings to help with your holiday spending? Let’s upgrade your mortgage and put money back in your wallet with a new Purchase or Refinance Loan.
