With the freezing climate and heavy snowfall all over your place, the electrical system failure is probably the last thing you’ll want. Though checking the electrical system of your property isn’t a challenging task. It is advisable to call the electric inspection team and let them inspect your property thoroughly. If you are conducting an electrical inspection on your own, start with the multi-meter to observe the current power flow via the electrical circuit. Once done, check the wall sockets, wires, heating devices, and extension cords. If there’s an issue with the wiring or power flow of electricity, hire the professional electrician instantly (as this isn’t something you could attempt to fix on your own).

Prevent Ice Dams

Ice dams (most commonly develops at your roof’s edge) aren’t unusual in the snowy climate, especially when there is heavy snowfall in your region. However, Ice dams do not let the melting snow drain properly, causing the liquid to leak through your roof. Such water leakages are one of the major reasons for the ceiling, walls, and insulation damages to your property.

Property Maintenance

The only way to avoid Ice dam formation is by maintaining the temperature at your roof same all throughout the winter season. Adding insulation and improving the ventilation system in your property could help you to keep the temperature at your roof stable.

Seal All The Leaky Windows and Doors

Do you observe any gap between the seals in your door while you close them? If yes, it is recommended to seal off the doors to prevent the access of cold air to your property. The leaky areas could be sealed using foam-tape which comes with sticky backing or the tubular rubber and silicone. Similarly, go through the windows and add new weather-stripping in the leaky areas.
