You may just be getting into the swing of things for summer – enjoying your patio, taking a dip in the pool, or relaxing after a hard day with a refreshing beverage on your patio. In fact, for some families, your kids may just be getting out of school for the summer holiday!
It may seem early, but preparing for the winter – yes, even in the summer- will make you one cool homeowner while the weather is warm.
The Summer Bird Gets the Winter Windows
Although you may only think about your drafty windows when the winter winds are blowing, summer is actually the best time to start thinking about how to stay warm and save money with your windows this winter. Because of supply chain issues and labor shortages, many customers are ordering their energy-efficient windows now, because it could take up to three months for them to be made, delivered, and installed.
Even in the summer, you can locate the drafty areas of your home. While this is mainly where your windows are, drafty places in your home could be patio doors, a damaged roof, or your siding.
Sunshine After the Storm
Or in this case, winter after the sunshine – don’t forget to start preparing your home for winter now. Many homeowners may get stuck in a bind this winter if they don’t start looking ahead. One way to create a fun outdoor space that can be used in the summer and winter is to add a firepit! Invite some friends and roast smores in the warm season and cozy up next to it in the wintertime.
