If you heat by wood, clean your fireplace or stove. Have your chimney flue checked for any buildup of creosote and then cleaned to lessen the risk of fire.

2. Make sure your home is properly insulated. If necessary, insulate walls and attic. This will help you to conserve energy and reduce your home’s power demands for heat.

3. Caulk and weather-strip doors and windowsills to keep cold air out.

4. Install storm windows or cover windows with plastic from the inside. This will Continue reading Prepare Your Home for Winter
