Cooler temperatures signal the need to winterize your home and vehicles to save energy and prepare for cold weather emergencies. BBB reminds consumers of a few items that should really be taken care of before the weather gets too cold and brutal to keep your family warm and safe this winter.
“Getting your heating system in tip-top shape can prevent breakdowns and save money in the long run. You may need to service cars or assemble a cold weather kit”, said Mechele Agbayani Mills, President and CEO of BBB Serving Central East Texas. “At least once a year, it makes sense to check your furnace, put ice scrapers in your car and make sure your home is winterized.”
An emergency kit should contain bottled water, a first aid kit, battery-operated radio, fresh batteries, candles, matches and non-perishable food.
