Dominion Virginia Power is encouraging its customers to prepare their homes for the winter months.
The state's largest electric utility says winterizing a home will help increase energy efficiency and comfort.
Dominion says some of the important steps to prepare a home for winter include replacing or cleaning air filters, having heating systems inspected, check ductwork, and seal windows and doors with weather stripping or caulk.
Richmond-based Dominion has about 2.3 million customers in Virginia.
