Steps to Keeping Your Home Comfortable This Winter

cold weatherAs the temperatures continue to drop you will want to make sure your home is prepped for winter. Improving your heater efficiency will help maintain warm air throughout the house without having to constantly bump up the temperature on the thermostat. Here are a few things to check to ensure your home is set for colder weather.

  1. Check the condition of your insulation, especially if it’s an older house, it could be that there is not enough insulation to keep the heat in and the cold air out.
  2. Inspect all the windows and doors for cracks or gaps that should be sealed off with weathering tape. This will prevent the heated air from escaping and helps keep your furnace running efficiently.
  3. Have your furnace inspected and maintained prior to using it this winter.

An HVAC technician can properly inspect and even clean your furnace and duct work to make sure there are no leaks or debris clogging up the system. Keeping the equipment clean and sealing off cracks around windows and doors keeps your furnace from worker harder to heat the house. The more efficient your furnace is, the less money you will have to spend on your energy bills
