Tips To Prepare Your Home For Cold Weather
We know it might seem odd to think about getting things around your home prepped for colder weather when the temperatures are still reaching into the 80s and 90s. However, fall is here and, especially at night, we are reminded that colder temperatures are on their way. Here are some tips to make sure that your home is ready for the cold weather to come.
- Check on your gas fireplace: Do you have a fireplace in your home? If so, even if you’ve only used it once over the last year, it is a good idea to give it a good look to make sure everything is okay. Dust the area around your fireplace, check that the damper is working properly, and consider having a professional technician come out to check the gas connection is in working order.
- Address any air leaks: This applies to both your summertime and your wintertime comfort. Air leaks around the doors and windows of your home are never a good thing–they let in the uncomfortable air from outside your home! Just like addressing air leaks in summer keeps your home cool, identifying and sealing up any air leaks you find now will help keep your home warm when you need it to.
- Clean dirty filters and vents: Dirt can seriously hurt your home comfort. A little bit of dust might now seem like it can become an issue but this is far from the truth. Check the filter for your heating system and make sure it is clean–if it isn’t, replace it or clean it if it is reusable. Likewise, check the vents around your home to ensure they are clear of any blockages like furniture or plants and dust them off if they are dirty.
- Schedule heater maintenance: A yearly maintenance appointment for your heating system will make the biggest and most positive difference for your home’s comfort. When you have professionals like ours perform this tune-up, you can rest assured it will benefit your comfort, your bills, and your home’s energy efficiency.
