Winter maintenance and Los Angeles, CA homeowners insurance can keep you safe and warm during the colder months.
Winter in Southern California may be mild, but that doesn’t mean you can just ignore it! Now that winter is officially underway, it’s putting some extra strain on your house. Make sure the home you rely on for shelter is up to the task! We want to help you help your home weather the winter, so we’re offering these maintenance and Los Angeles, CA homeowners insurance suggestions.
- Inspect Insulation. Your insulation is essentially your home’s winter jacket. If it’s got gaps or isn’t thick enough, you and your house are going to be chilly. Look at your insulation throughout your home, paying special attention to your attic, to figure out if there are any areas that need some extra care. Also, install weather stripping to your doors and re-caulk the seals around your doors and windows as needed!
- Help Heaters. Have a professional come to inspect your furnace, chimney, and/or boiler at least once a year. If your pro doesn’t replace your furnace filter, do it yourself.
- Support Safety. Since you’ll be relying on things like your furnace this winter, you’re at a higher risk for things like home fires and carbon monoxide exposure. Protect your family against these hazards by testing your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Put fresh batteries in these crucial devices and use the “old” batteries in other, less important electronics.
- Gear Up Gutters. The winter is expected to bring a lot of rain to California. Get ready for it by cleaning out your gutters.
