Daily Resolution: Winterproof Your Home

Regardless of the climate, there is seasonal work around the house to be done. Colder climates require such steps as checking a home for heat efficiency by sealing up places that lend themselves to draft (door frames and windows), having a heating and cooling system checked (a good idea for warm climates too), and cleaning out air ducts and vents. For warmer climates, make any repairs to windows, roofing, or siding that may be weathered. And if you live in the snow belt, get yourself a good shovel now before the stores sell out during the next blizzard!
