Protect your home from the deep winter freeze

The United States has often experienced a deep freeze, which means that all 50 states are dealing with temperatures that are well below freezing. This is not entirely welcome news
for anybody, as most people can remember the last arctic freeze that engulfed the country. The chilly atmosphere means that homeowners will be relying more heavily on their heating systems and other ways to keep their residences warm and safe.

There are plenty of ways you can prepare your house for the extreme winter weathers to ensure that you are comfortable while indoors. For example, checking the seals around your doors and windows is a great place to start. A lot of heat can be lost if there are holes in these areas, as the warmth will leak outside and the cold air will come in. One of the best things you can do is check around each window and door in your home to ensure that any leaks that do exist are plugged up right away.

You should also be sure to keep your pipes and plumbing system protected by wrapping any exposed areas in heating tape. Having running water will be essential to keep your home safe throughout the winter, and a frozen or burst pipe will be of no use to you and your family. Along these lines, you should also keep your home at a steady indoor temperature - between 65 and 70 degrees - so the winter climate does not freeze the interior of your home.
