Tips to Keep in Mind

Here are some tips you should keep at the forefront of your mind this winter.

1.      Keep Your Thermostat Setting Mild

We know what it’s like to wake up in the morning and dread peeling off those covers because your home is so cold. This type of chilly weather can make you spring out of bed, beeline for the thermostat, and crank the temperature up to one of the highest settings possible. We know that it feels like the right thing to do at the time, but it’s actually something that’s going to run down your heating efficacy. Call us for exactly what you need.

2.      Utilize Your Curtains

If your home is freezing cold during the day, make sure that you’re opening up your curtains to let in a little natural light. Your home’s natural light is going to help your home warm up a little bit. This means that you’ll be more comfortable at home and you’re going to spend less money and time heating up the place.

3.      Use Your Ceiling Fan

We know what you might be thinking—“Using your ceiling fan when it’s cold?”

Yes! It’s actually helpful if you reverse the typical flow of your ceiling fan. This means that your fan will circulate the warm air downward back to where you’re sitting rather than having all that warm air collect at the ceiling.

4.      Beef Up Your Insulation

Have you noticed that your home has inexplicable drafts throughout it? You’re always feeling cold spots that you just can’t explain. This means that your insulation is lacking at home. Have a professional pinpoint your home’s weak points and then suggest ways that you can help your insulation.

5.      Update When Needed

How long have you had the various elements of your home’s HVAC system? If you’ve had the current parts of your home’s HVAC system for 10 years or even longer, then it means that it is time for you to update.

Technology makes leaps and bounds in the span of even a few years. If you wait almost 10, then you’re going to have new information to catch up on and various options to choose from. We’re going to make sure that you choose the right systems for your home.
