If you live in Indiana or Illinois, you’re no stranger to heavy snow. While snow can be beautiful, it can also lead to downed power lines and outages and other risks for homeowners, especially those living in more rural areas. Here are some tips for preparing when heavy snow is in the forecast—
If heavy snow also means freezing temperatures that drop well below 32 degrees Fahrenheit, then you should start to prepare your house by insulating your pipes. When temperatures drop too low, there is a risk of pipes freezing. You can avoid this—and the potential disaster that follows—by insulating water lines, and also caulking doors and weatherstripping.
Another way to prepare for a big snowstorm is to put together an emergency kit. The following contains a list of some basic emergency kit items, but is by no means inclusive or totally comprehensive.
Another way that you can keep everyone in your home safe and comfortable is to invest in a standby generator. With a standby generator, your home will continue to benefit from electricity even if the lights go out for your neighbors. Standby generators kick on automatically and are a reliable source of consistent power during an outage.
