A large part of a change of seasons is being ready for whatever comes next. That is especially true with the winter season in many parts of the country, as it’s time to prepare and brace yourself for however treacherous the season actually becomes. This can be accomplished with a checklist of sorts, for both residents and managers. Little things like putting stakes next to flourishing plants will let an individual know where the sidewalk ends and the garden begins, or using a snow melter—like calcium chloride—can help alleviate a problem before it even starts.
Other simple steps include: closing storm windows, if applicable, to add another layer to keep cold air out of a home; leaving curtains open during a day saves money on heating costs; keeping doors closed minimizes the space that needs to be heated, while also eliminating extra work done to insulate; keep door gaps closed so heat doesn’t escape a living space, such as attaching door sweeps on the bottom; insulate outlets and switches, as they let in more cool air than people realize; make sure the heating system is up to date and working properly; curtain installation may add both beauty and warmth to a space; don’t cover vents so heat doesn’t get caught; and use ceiling fans to their full capability—which means running it in reverse can bring warm air to the floor.
Winterization is important not only financially and health-wise, but also helps the environment by reducing carbon emission into the atmosphere. And along with these tips, investing in items like blankets and candles are little things that go a long way.
When you think of cold air invading your premises, you wonder where it comes from in the first place. Sometimes, the air comes through places where you least expect them—such as through electrical outlets that contain gaps. And often, air comes through windows that are not properly insulated to endure a rough winter season. Aside from replacing windows during a drafty season, there are easy ways both residents and managers can make amends for less than stellar weather.
There’s the often obvious solution of putting plastic over windows—which reduces the amount of heat that escapes through the cold glass of windows. It is cheap and effective, requiring only plastic sheets and some strong tape as adhesive. Caulking comes in handy during the winter, too. Some buildings have various cracks that open up in the wintertime and get smaller during the summer. These are more prevalent in older structures and occur everywhere, from door frames to roofs to around windows. Instead of letting warm air escape into the abyss, caulking can help seal in the air.
The same methodology works just for windows. Rubber sealant, which can be purchased at any hardware store, can be cut to fit your windows’ dimensions and keep out drafts. It’s cheap, effective and not an eye sore—except maybe until the sealant is ripped off in the spring. Shades and curtains provide different patterns for aesthetic purposes, and they also allow residents to choose how much light they want to shine in the first place. It’s natural heat when the windows are open, and shades can be adjusted to allow only a certain amount of light to come inside.
