Cold Weather 2019 To-Do List

Winter Maintenance Items to Check

It finally feels like winter, that's for sure. 

Often when it's been unseasonably warm we feel colder than we might when the weather changes because we're used to warmer weather.

That being said, let's go over a few things that you should check in your home so that the warmth of your heat stays inside and the cold air stays outside.

  • Check all windows and doors for air leaks and add weather-stripping or caulk as needed.
  • Keep furniture away from floor registers or returns if you have a forced (warm) air furnace so that you don't block airflow.
  • Open your draperies or shades to let in the sun and bring extra warmth to the room. 
  • Refrain from lowering your thermostat temperatures when it's subzero or single digit temperature outside -- it will be harder for your heating system to recover and warm your home.
  • Be sure that your disposable filter is clean and unobstructed to encourage better airflow.
