Remember These Tips!
Keep these tips in mind this winter:
1. Change Out Your Heater’s Filter
Your heater has a filter, and you should be switching it out at least once a season. During the heating season this means that you need to change the filter once in the fall and once in the winter. Changing out this filter is how you can prepare your home’s heater for the work it has ahead. This is something simple you can do all on your own.
2. Schedule an Appointment for Maintenance
You need to schedule an appointment for maintenance services once every fall. You can still call us up if you missed out this fall. Maintenance is a foolproof way to help you keep your heater in amazing shape. You’ll save time, money, and energy.
3. Upgrade Your Thermostat
If you’ve had the same thermostat for more than a decade, then it means you need to upgrade. Don’t settle for something that’s merely digital. You need to upgrade to smart or Wi-Fi for better heating quality and better heating prices.
4. Clear Out Your Home
Make sure that your home’s furniture isn’t blocking any of your vents. Homeowners have a bad habit of moving around their furniture during fall and spring when they need their HVAC systems less. Don’t fall into this trap. Move around your furniture for the best airflow.
5. Seal Up Your Home
Is your home lacking insulation? You might notice that it is if you feel drafts moving through your home with no real source. You’ve got some cracking and gapping somewhere and it’s hurting the heating quality of your home.
6. Open Up Your Curtains
You need to open up your curtains and blinds during the day. Letting in the natural light from outdoors is going to help you out this winter. It naturally raises the temperature of your home, helps you spend less time heating, and it helps you spend less money heating too.
7. Add a Humidifier
Are you having trouble getting your home warm when it counts? You might want to add a humidifier to the mix. Humidifiers add a much-needed level of water vapor to your home. This is probably what you’re missing if you feel as though you need to run your heater for hours on end to stay warm.
