Prepare for Winter with CAA Rewards®!

You can tell by the cooler temperatures and shorter days that winter is just around the corner. Since we don’t have the option to slip into hibernation, here’s a few helpful tips on how to prepare for the colder months ahead.

Winter-proofing your home and property

Whatever your opinion is on winter, the frigid temperatures and snow can be hard on our houses. Cold leaks are major headaches during this time of the year, making your house less comfortable and durable, and driving up heating costs. Applying weatherstripping to doors and windows is a simple and cost-effective way to prevent cold leaks that will prove beneficial in all seasons.

Furnaces are our main defence against the winter cold; we can’t afford for them to go down or malfunction. Regularly replacing your furnace filter helps with durability and prevents airflow blocks. It also helps improve the air quality inside your house.

Icy and snow-covered driveways are big pains during winter, not to mention safety hazards. Now is the time to make sure you have the proper tools to clear high-traffic areas around your house – shovels and ice melting salt and sand.

Clearing fallen leaves off your lawn before winter hits helps your grass bounce back in the spring and prevents the buildup of worrisome pests and diseases, including brown patches and snow mould. If left untouched, fallen leaves form a barrier under the snow that prevents water, nutrients, and air from reaching the root system of your grass. Don’t wait until it’s too late to pull out your rake and start clearing those leaves.
