Tips For Winterizing Your Lake Home
Lake season is coming to an end, so make sure to take these steps to prepare for the colder months ahead.
If you heat through the winter, lower the thermostat, still keeping it above 50 degrees.
If you do not heat through the winter, make sure to drain your pipes and blow out all the water. Then put antifreeze in the traps and drains.
Unplug all electronics and appliances. If you unplug your refrigerator, make sure to keep the door cracked to avoid smells.
Leave cabinet doors under sinks open to allow some heat in.
Clean and remove ashes from fireplace and close the fireplace damper.
Store all boats, life jackets, patio furniture, recreational equipment and any other items you keeps outside, making sure to notice what needs repairing or replacing (these things are easy to do in the winter months).
Clean out gutters.
Seal any leaks around vents, pipes, windows and doors with insulation or caulk to keep the heat in and the pests out.
Blow out lines to any sprinkler systems.
Check the roof for any needed repairs to prevent leaks while you're away.
Take these steps to be sure you're lake home is ready to go next summer!
