The Best Tips for Managing Your PA Apartment in Cold Weather

Winter is one of the prettiest seasons of all, especially if you are lucky enough to live in Allentown, Pennsylvania, where snow falls generously over the mountainous landscapes. But as much as the snow is appreciated – between snowboarding, snowman making and ice-skating – it can also be a bit of a burden, something apartment leasers in Allentown know all too well. If you’re worried about the cooler months ahead and the type of damage it could do to your apartment, follow these helpful tips for prepping your apartment this winter:

 

Acquire a Supply of Must-Have Items

When a serious snow storm hits, there is no worse thing than being trapped in your apartment with no way to get out, especially if you don’t have enough food, or any other essential items that you may need to get by. Before the first wintry mix of the season hits, take a trip to the local supermarket and make it a point to check off all the must-have items on your list. It is always a smart idea to purchase water bottles, in case an issue occurs with the plumbing; canned food and instant-meals, if you can’t access a microwave, stove or oven; and pet food supplies, if you’re not able to make it out of your apartment to purchase more food for your dog or cat.

 

Swap Out Your Bedding

You’re going to need warmer bedding and throw blankets to keep you warm as the snow falls. Store your warmer weather bedding away in your closet and replace it with heavier, cozier bedding options like flannel sheets and down comforters. Additionally, if you have throw blankets around your apartment, you may want to replace them with wool blankets to keep you and your guests comfortable.

 

Consider Your Windows

While damaged windows aren’t something any luxury apartment leaser has to worry about, it’s still advised to inspect each window, and check for any leaks or cracks. Drafty windows are a large nuisance during the chilly winter season, allowing the cooler air to be let in. This makes your apartment colder than necessary. If there are any blemishes in a window, contact the maintenance crew or landlord, who should fix them as soon as possible.

 

Decorate for the Holidays

Who said that preparing your apartment for the winter can’t be fun? Whether you prefer a holiday theme or to take inspiration from beauty of nature this season, you can bring the wintertime fun indoors with festive decorations throughout your entire apartment! If you host lots of dinner parties and holiday celebrations, your guests will love your seasonal décor.
