Be proactive before winter comes with proper home maintenance.
You know when it gets cold out, and one step outdoors can cause you to shiver and your teeth to chatter? You sit in your car taking advantage of the heat while you muster up the courage to brave the icy breeze. Then, you race inside, ears burning and all. But one of the best feelings is opening and closing the door behind you, and instantly thawing out by the warmth of your home.
Could you imagine if your furnace was broken during the winter months? You’d have to cocoon in 5 layers of sweaters and wrap up in fuzzy blankets. Plus, that would be a costly repair or replacement. There are steps you can take when switching from AC to heat to help prevent any issues.
If there appears to be any slits in the seals around your windows or doors, this will cause the heat to seep out. When your heat is seeping outdoors instead of warming your home, this will cost you more money. You can make home improvements with the help of a professional.
Be sure to check all your vents. Ensure they are clean. Open all the vents to promote proper airflow in your home. Remove any items that are placed in front of a vent. Doing so will make sure the air circulation is moving throughout your entire home, keeping you cozy.
