How to maximize livability in your home with improvements to help keep you warm, dry, and safe during the winter months

After an extended season of outdoor entertaining and parties on the patio, winter weather is now forcing most of the country back indoors.  With reduced travel and multiple family members working and studying from home, the stresses and strains on your home will increase.  Home Improvement and Safety Expert Tom Kraeutler will demonstrate his favorite fix-ups and do-it-yourself projects as we head into winter – with a focus on improvements that improve quality of life right and maximize your space, no matter the size:

Safety First:  How to properly clean and disinfect surfaces and keep your family safe during the peak months for fires and accidents.

Worry Free Warmth:  Keep your showers warm and your basement dry with new technologies in hot water heating.

Find Living Space in Unlikely Places:  Expand the playroom, man cave, or gym with new subfloors featuring a layer of insulating air under your feet.

Tom Kraeutler is co-host of the nationally syndicated home improvement radio program and podcast The Money Pit, and author of My Home, My Money Pit:  Your Guide to Every Home Improvement Adventure.  He earned his home improvement stripes as a professional home inspector, amassing over 20 years’ experience learning how houses are put together, and how they fall apart!
