  2. Winterize Your Home: Insulate attic, walls, and pipes; caulk and weather-strip old doors and windows.

  3. Clear rain gutters, repair roof leaks and cut away tree branches that could fall on your house during a storm.

  4. Allow faucets to drip a little during cold weather to avoid freezing.

  5. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside and kept clear of debris.

  6. Keep fire extinguishers on hand and make sure everyone knows how to use them.

  7. Learn how to shut off water valves and mark with a visible tag. In case your house is unheated for a long period, it is recommended to drain water pipes and turn off the main water valve.

  8. Install storm windows to insulate or cover windows with plastic from the inside to keep cold air out.

  9. Hire a contractor to check the structural ability of the roof to sustain additional weight from an accumulation of snow, or water, if you have a flat roof and your drains do not work.

  10. Keep names and contact information of trusted plumbers, electricians and your Blossman Service Technician.
