Fall is now upon us, which means beautiful foliage, and inevitably falling temperatures. While crisp temperatures may seem refreshing, they are an indication that winter is not far away. There are some important steps you can take this time of year to ready your home for the coming winter.
I hope you enjoy our tips in this newsletter for winterizing your home. And as always, Ruth’s HomeWorks is ready to assist you with all of the free referrals you need to get your house fully winterized before the season hits.

Energy Efficiency Means Lower Heat BillsOne of the biggest gripes that homeowners have about the winter is the heating bills. Now is a great time to have your heating system serviced to ensure that it is running in perfect order before the coldest months hit. You can also winterize your home, making it more energy efficient by caulking exterior windows. This will prevent you from losing precious heat during those coldest months.
Put Your Ceiling Fan to Work this WinterDid you know that you can actually put your ceiling fan to work in the winter as well? By reversing the motor, you can operate the fan on a low speed in the clockwise direction. This will in turn produce a gentle updraft, forcing warm air near the ceiling of the room to move down.
Keep the Hibernating Bugs Out of Your HomeLate fall is prime time for bugs and pests to find a nice warm place to hibernate during the winter. Don't let their hiding place be your home! Now is a great time to spray for these unwelcome guests before they move in for the winter.
Snow Removal is a NecessityIt isn't too early to think ahead to your snow removal. Our reliable and reasonably priced snow removal professional is scheduling estimates now. Whether for yourself or a loved one, be sure to get on the schedule before that first snowfall. There's peace of mind in knowing your sidewalks and driveway will be safe when that first flake falls.
