Preparing Your Home For Winter

Preparing for bad road conditions isn't the only thing Lincolnites need to worry about with winter weather. The good news though is that weatherizing a home can be done by just about anyone. Most material, like window insulation and foam strips that keep the cold outside, can be bought at local hardware stores. But there are some things that should be left to the professionals like getting your furnace checked which should be done every couple of years. But if you wait to the last minute you might have a hard time getting an appointment. It's going to be hard to summons a trained professional to your home because he's going to be busy and the waiting list is going to get longer the colder it gets. Also, remember to check your carbon monoxide detector , officials say those are just as important as smoke detectors.
