Winter will soon be upon us; is your Maryland home ready? According to this year’s Farmer’s Almanac, this Maryland winter should be bitter and cold and the pros at Window Nation want you to be prepared. Here are some great tips to help prepare Maryland homes for what the late fall and winter has in store for us this year.

 

  1. Have your heating system serviced; you don’t want to be caught on the coldest day of the year without heat! Contact a professional to service your furnace and make sure it will be running smoothly for you all winter long.

  2. Got drafty windows? It’s time for replacement windows; Baltimore natives know that Window Nation is the best option for a great variety of replacement windows for your home with excellent installation and courteous service. Replacement windows can help reduce energy leakage that may be occurring inside your home, helping to reduce your energy bills and keeping your home at a more comfortable temperature.

  3. Install programmable thermostats in your home; these can help you save money during the winter by only heating your home when you are there and bringing the temperature down while you are not home.

  4. Consider having reinforced vinyl siding installed by Window Nation’s siding experts in Maryland. Vinyl siding can offer increased insulation on your home as well as protect it from the elements. As an added benefit, vinyl siding will improve the look of your home without the extensive maintenance that is required with wood siding.

  5. Install storm doors on your home; these doors can help keep your entry door system better insulated and protect from the cold weather and winter storms that are sure to come.

  6. Clean the gutters, the fireplace and the chimney. Preparing these things now can help you avoid problems with them in the winter.

  7. Put that air conditioner away in the basement; storing it properly can help make sure it will be ready and waiting for you when you need it next spring.

 

While winter in Maryland may not be as harsh as cities and states to our north, we still know how to survive the cold weather! Just like the story of The Ant and the Grasshopper, we know that planning for the future can pay off! Take care now to make sure your home is prepared for the coming winter months.
