Well, like it or not, colder weather is upon us. It’s time to take a few minutes and make sure that your timber frame home is weatherized and winter ready.
Check all your window and doors for leakage. We found a window that hadn’t been closed properly and would have leaked cold air in (and warm air out) during our check.
Clean out your gutters so that leaves and “gunk” won’t let the water flow out. Water frozen in place can damage your gutters.
Make sure that the filters for your heating system are clean and/or replaced. You’ll get maximum efficiency with clean filters.
Surely there is more to do, but this list should get you started for now as your timber frame home shelters you for the winter.
