Winter is coming—it’s inevitable. Here are some steps you can use to help prepare your home for winter.
- Change Your Air Filter: This is something you need to do year-round. Check the instructions on your air filter and follow the recommended schedule for replacing.
- Seal Drafty Windows: If your home is older, you probably have a few of these in your house. You can use plastic wrap to help insulate your windows (click here for a quick google search).
- Reverse Ceiling Fans: If a fan is running counter clockwise, this means you’re pulling hot air up instead of forcing it down. Change the direction to clockwise and keep hot air from escaping.
- Schedule A Checkup For Your Heating System: Like any appliance, your heating system needs some maintenance from time-to-time. It is better to assess and take preventative measures before the winter sets in. Give us a call at 301-223-5749 and schedule your appointment today!
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us! We’d be happy to help keep your home toasty and warm this winter.
