Staying Safe and Healthy During Canadian Winter

We have been pretty lucky so far with the weather here in Ottawa this winter season. But we need to remember that winter in Canada can take a turn for the worse at any time and our homes should be prepared.

Here are a few tips that will keep you safe and warm during the colder days ahead:

-Install proper insulation, weather stripping, storm windows

-Water lines running along exterior walls should be insulated

-Gutters should be clean of any debris, leaves etc.

-Roof leaks should be dealt with immediately


We tend to spend more time inside our homes during the winter months so please make sure you take the proper precautions:

-Have your heating system checked by a professional to make sure it is clean and ventilating properly

-Have chimney cleaned and inspected regularly if using on a regular basis to prevent fire

-Change batteries in smoke detectors and test them once a month

-Have CO detector installed to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning
