Denver movers explain how to get your new home ready for winter

Moving during the winter is always a challenge. There’s snow to worry about, freezing temperatures to prepare for, and hazardous road conditions to navigate. An experienced Colorado moving team will be able to transport your belongings to your new home safely, even when the weather is bad. But there are still a few things you should do to make sure your new home is ready for the cold weather before your belongings are delivered. Here are some of the most important tasks to take care of as soon as you close on the house.

Check for Drafts

Drafty windows are one of the leading causes of heat loss in the winter. Over the course of the season, even a small amount of heat loss can cause your energy bills to skyrocket. Before your belongings are delivered, inspect the windows at your new property for drafts and leaks. If you notice any, take the time to seal them up properly or call a window repair expert to handle it for you. The sooner you block off those drafts, and the warmer your house will stay.

Schedule an HVAC Tune-Up

The last thing any homeowner wants to deal with is a broken heater right in the middle of winter. Before moving in, schedule a tune-up for your new home’s heating and cooling system. This will allow the technician to make sure the system is ready to handle the cold temperatures without breaking down. They’ll also be able to replace your air filters during the appointment to help ensure that your indoor air quality is as good as possible for the winter months.

Invest in Door Mats

Winter grime has a way of collecting on your shoes, the cuffs of your pants, and on the paws of furry family members. All that muck can take a lot of time to clean up, especially on wet and snowy days. Once you close on the house, measure the space around your entryway and your back door. Then, invest in durable mud mats to give you a place to scrub your feet clean before walking into the rest of the house. This will help keep your new home cleaner while also reducing the risk of damage to the finish on your floor.

Turn On the Heat, Even When You’re Not Moved In

No one wants to spend more money on heating than is necessary. That’s why many homeowners hesitate to turn on the heat in their new house before they move in. Unfortunately, this is also a recipe for disaster. Pipes can freeze and burst quickly, even with the heat at a low temperature. Protect your investment by setting the heat to at least 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This should be enough to keep your new house from freezing without raising your heating costs too much.

Moving in the winter doesn’t have to be a daunting prospect. Contact us today to schedule a free no-obligation moving estimate. Our drivers will make sure your belongings make it safely to your new house so you can focus on getting settled in.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
