The temperatures are expected to dip this week just as things heats up tonight with Game 1 of the World Series, which gets underway in just a few hours at Fenway Park—go Red Sox! With plunging temps comes rising home-heating costs unless you don’t take proactive steps to properly winterize your home.
Gold Painting Inc., which offers a wide variety of exterior home maintenance services, recommends, sealing off cracks to windows and doors to trap heat and keep frigid air from swooping in, which can send heating costs skyrocketing. Apply a fresh coat of primer and exterior paint to the window and door frames every couple of years and use weatherstripping materials around cracks to seal things off for the winter.
Now is a good time, too, to paint your home’s exterior. Paint acts as a barrier to disallow moisture from seeping in. If moisture is present between the walls your furnace might have to work harder to maintain the temperature you’ve set inside.
It’s also a good time to restain your deck and wood stairs so it’s ready for next spring! It’s important to swap out any splintered wood and apply a new coat of stain to maintain decking’s luster for years to come. Gold Painting Inc. recommends investing in a water-resistant stain for longlasting results.
