During the winter, most people spend more time indoors where it’s warm and cozy. Whether you use a fireplace, furnace or heat pump to stay warm during the season, you need to make sure that your home is properly winterized. Gutter Helmet® of Northern Minnesota, your best choice for gutter protection systems, shares a few important tips to help you out:

Mind Your Windows

Your windows will need to be inspected and cleaned to determine whether they’re still in good condition for the season. You should also check their frames for drafts or any other sign of damage that needs to be repaired. One of the best ways to do this is by using a lighter or a lighted candle around your windows and seeing where the flame flickers. If you find any gaps, make sure to seal them properly using caulk, weatherstripping, or foam to winterize them.

Check Your HVAC and Heating Vents

Your outdoor HVAC unit will be exposed to snow and ice throughout the winter. It’s important to make sure that it’s cleaned properly and is protected from the elements. It’s susceptible to dirt and debris, so it must be cleaned thoroughly using a garden hose especially with the condensing coils and fan blades. After washing off the dirt and debris, the unit must be dried completely before covering it to prevent the water droplets from freezing and affecting its performance.

Clean Your Roof and Gutters

Proper roofing and gutter cleaning are crucial when winterizing your home. Doing this by yourself can also be dangerous even if you have the basic equipment, so let the professionals do it instead. Hiring an experienced gutter maintenance contractor for the job is also the best way to ensure your gutters stay in good condition throughout the winter season. And with the quality services offered at Gutter Helmet of Northern Minnesota, your gutters will be checked thoroughly, with any issues addressed right away.
