The cold weather is upon us! As the temperatures continue to drop, your house will require maintenance to keep it in prime condition for the winter. Below are a few things you can check around your home to make sure you are ready!
Furnace Inspection: Make sure you have your furnace inspected by an HVAC professional and also have them clean your air ducts. We also recommend stocking up on furnace filters so you can change them monthly to keep your furnace running efficiently.
Fireplace Check: Put a screen or cap on the chimney top to keep out rodents and birds and make sure the fire place is clean inside. Also, inspect the fireplace damper for proper opening and closing.
Check the Exterior: Take a look at the exterior of your home for cracks and exposed entry points and pipes and have them sealed. Take a look at your windows as well and make sure they are properly caulked so no cold air creeps in. Lastly, make sure your home is properly insulated so you can stay warm all winter!
These are easy tips that you can do around your home to make sure you are fully prepared for the cold months ahead! To get a furnace tune-up for the winter call your HVAC professional, they’ll be happy to help!
