Preparing Your Home for Heating Season
It’s fall, which means time for pumpkins, apples, sweaters, boots, and changing leaves. But the coming of fall also signals the beginning of cooler weather. There are a few things you’ll want to do to make sure your home is ready for the heating season when you’ll be running your heat.
Check for Gaps in Your Insulation
Gaps in your insulation can mean that the warm air produced by your HVAC unit is escaping from your home. This will lead to your unit running more often and wasting money and energy. When your home is properly insulated, the warm air will stay inside and your unit will not need to run as often. You can hire a contractor to make repairs for you, or you can pick up some spray-foam insulation and fill in any gaps you find on your own.
Close Your Storm Windows
Your home has storm windows for a reason. They act as an additional layer to prevent warm air from going out or cold air from getting in. To get your home ready for the colder weather, make sure all of your storm windows are closed.
Make an Appointment for HVAC Maintenance
One of the most important things you can do is to make sure your HVAC unit is ready. By scheduling a heating system tune-up with Your Service Professional Heating & Cooling, you’ll feel more confident that your HVAC unit will get you through another cold winter.
During your tune-up, one of our experienced technicians will inspect your unit, replace the filter, check for any leaks, address any minor repairs, and alert you to any potential issues. Performing regular maintenance on your heating system can extend its life.
