5 Heating Tips for the Colder Months

Add Insulation

Have your home inspected for gaps that allow cold air to infiltrate its interior. Caulk can be applied around doors and windows to close those gaps. Check your basement, exposed pipes, and other areas to ensure there's enough insulation to keep warm air in motion and prevent water leaks.

Check Your Furnace

Turn your furnace on to check for any strange noises and smells. Pay special attention to a burning odor or a straining sound. It's also important to have the furnace's carbon monoxide detector checked by a licensed heating repair technician who can identify dangerous conditions.

Adjust Water Channels

An inspection from a professional roofer is the surest way to spot leaks and other damage before the snow and ice arrive.

Buy a Fire Extinguisher 

Unfortunately, house fires during the winter are common due to the heavy usage of heating systems. With this in mind, invest in a fire extinguisher to tackle emergencies. Make sure all adults and responsible teenagers know how to use the device.

Schedule an Inspection

Now is also an ideal time to schedule an inspection from a certified heating and cooling technician. They have the experience and specialty equipment to thoroughly check your furnaces, central air units, and other systems. In addition to identifying and repairing trouble spots, they'll provide additional suggestions for keeping your home comfortable during winter.
