CDC: Prepare homes for winter weather

Posted On Wed, January 18, 2012

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned consumers of the dangers of winter, especially the importance to ensure their home is prepared for the cold weather season.

It is important for consumers to take measures to ensure their home is properly ready for the winter season, as snow and ice can wreak havoc on a home's facade, and be a danger to those who live inside, according to the source. Installing items such as weather stripping and storm windows will go a long way to protect the home against the elements.

In addition, have the home's heating units examined to make sure they are in safe, working order, the source noted. If there is a fireplace in the home, make sure that it is cleaned and safe before using.

Another measure that could be important is to ensure a consumer's property has the correct home insurance coverage. This is important in case a storm does damage to the home, and a good way to do this is to compare home insurance quotes.
