  • Unplug any unnecessary electrical devices and turn off the power supply to major appliances at the main panel.

  • Turn off your main water supply and drain your pipes to prevent them from freezing and bursting.
  • Leave the door to your refrigerator and freezer open to avoid unpleasant odors in the spring.
  • Ensure windows and doors are fully closed and locked
  • Check on your property after winter storms, if possible, to ensure there’s no damage to the roof, windows or structure.
