Winter Storms Ahead: Are you ready?

Winter Storms Ahead:
Are You Ready?
 
We admit it: As insurance pros, our picture of winter isn’t exactly cozy. Winter storms mean traffic snarls, hillsides turning to sheets of ice, and cars sliding around like hockey pucks. Cold temperatures can cause pipes to burst, frost swells and other damage. Heating your home with fireplaces and holiday lighting can increase the risk of fire.
 
A picture-perfect winter requires a few precautions
Here are a few of our top tips to help reduce weather-related hassles this winter.
 
Winter-proof your car with good snow tires or chains, new wiper blades, antifreeze, and emergency road supplies.
 
Keep your attic cool to help prevent ice dams. Insulate the attic floor and make sure it is well-ventilated.
 
Do not overload circuits with holiday decorations.
 
When winter storms hit, be smart
If you do not have to drive, stay put. If you must drive, make sure you’ve winterized your car and have a full tank of gas.
 
When the air is cold, keep bath and kitchen cabinet doors open so warm air can circulate  around pipes. If pipes do freeze, let them thaw normally—they’ll be less likely to burst.
 
And if the power is out, make sure you avoid leaving candles or fires burning unattended. If you use a portable generator, follow the instructions and do not use it indoors.
