Tips You Need to Know

Here are the tips that you should keep in the back of your mind as winter marches along this winter.

1.      Insulate

Is your home properly insulated? You’ll know that your home’s insulation isn’t up to par if you’re feeling random drafts throughout your home. Don’t ignore this problem. It’s a symptom of a deeper issue and you’re going to need a professional eye to pinpoint the weak points in your home. Call us and we’ll help you out.

2.      Maintain Your Heater

Call to maintain your heater every single fall. Maintain your furnace is the best way to ensure that you get the best efficiency in your home. You don’t have to waste time and money when you have the right maintenance work.

3.      Upgrade Your Thermostat

When was the last time you upgraded your home’s thermostat? If you can’t remember the last time you upgraded then you’re overdue for a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat. We’re here to help get you exactly what you need.

4.      Wrap Up

It never hurt to throw on an extra layer or two when the temperatures outside are really cool. You don’t have to put excessive strain on your heater for what you need.

5.      Utilize Natural Light

Natural light can naturally raise the temperature of your home. Open up the blinds and curtains to let in natural light throughout the day. This will naturally heat up your home a little throughout the winter season.

6.      Move Your Furniture

Do you have big furniture in the way of your vents? You don’t want to leave your furniture there. This is going to hurt your efficiency in the long run. If you have a couch in the way of your vents, it’s time for you to rearrange the room. It will help you this winter.

7.      Get Your Ceiling Fan Involved

Your ceiling fan can actually help you stay warm this winter. We know this might seem a little odd at first, but it makes sense when you think about the fact that warm air rises. A ceiling fan is going to push your warm air down to your space so that you can enjoy the warmth. We’re going to help you with this.
