How to Get Your Home Ready for Colder Weather

As summer comes to an end and the weather starts to cool off, it is important to prepare your house to make a comfortable transition into the winter season. Here are a few steps you can take to ensure that your home is ready for cooler conditions.

Schedule a Fall HVAC Tune-Up

As we head into winter, you’ll want to be confident that you can rely on your central air system to provide the heating comfort you need. An experienced HVAC technician will give the system a thorough inspection to ensure all components are in good working order. The tech will work off of an exhaustive preventative maintenance checklist that will include an examination of the heat exchanger, ignition, burner assemblies and other parts critical to the heating system’s performance. These components were dormant all summer and they need a comprehensive tune-up before the cold settles in.

Seal Drafts

A leaky window with an inadequate seal can cause drafts within the house which can make a room significantly colder. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it wastes your money as well. Make sure to seal those leaks with caulk and weatherstripping and keep costly heating from going out the window.

Check Your Insulation

Ensure that your attic is adequately insulated. A lot of heat can be lost due to poor insulation. If your home was built in the 1970s and you haven’t replaced the insulation, you’re long overdue for an upgrade. Modern insulation is considerably more efficient, helping keep warm air in and cold air out. High-performance insulation can trim your monthly heating expenses by up to 35%.
