Tips To Keep Your Home Warm This Winter
There is more than one way to ensure that your home stays warm when the temperatures really take a dip downward. It isn’t all on your heating system. Here are some tips to help you help your home.
- Check around the home for air leaks. Leaks aren’t just a problem for your home’s plumbing. if there are leaks in the sealants around your doors or windows, it can hinder your ability to get your home warm enough. If you feel a cold draft coming from around a door or window in your home, it is a good idea to figure out if you can address it with caulk or weatherstripping.
- Clean or change your air filter. The air filter for your heater serves to protect the system’s internal workings from the damage that excess amounts of dirt and debris can create. We urge everyone to check their system filter every one to three months. If you haven’t checked your filter just yet, make sure you do so before you really start to use your heating system regularly to avoid any major issues.
- Consider giving your insulation a boost. Your insulation is going to play a big role in how well your home keeps you warm. If you notice that your heater needs to work harder than usual to keep the house cozy, it may be because your insulation needs to be repaired or even replaced.

It is also a good idea to make sure that any vents or air handlers around the home are kept free of hindrances like furniture, plants, or decorations.
- Schedule maintenance or repairs with a pro. Last but not least, make sure to schedule your yearly maintenance services sooner than later.
