How do you cope with short days and long nights characterized by a massive drop in temperatures? Winter is here and there is no way to avoid the chill. Preparations can, however, help to ensure you are warm, dry and safe.

Poisonous fumes like carbon monoxide can find their way inside your house via blockages or cracks. The best option is to have the chimney checked not only on the inside but on the outside. Bricks become broken and the mortar can crumble leading to costly repairs.

Every person wants to feel safe in their own home. Some people think that they are safe and some need a little more adjustments to make the home more secure. No matter in which group of people you belong, some of the following tips should help you keep your house safe.

One thing to do when going on vacation is to leave lights, the TV or stereo system on. That way it will look that someone is still at the home and it will prevent burglars from breaking in.

If you keep them open all the time you will bring unnecessary attention from outside.
