Prep Your Home for Lower Temps

Prep Your Home for Lower Temps

Autumn is upon us and with it come shorter daytime hours, chilly temperatures, and blustery winds. Is your home ready for the change of seasons? As you put out the fall décor and swap the t-shirts for sweaters, don’t forget to get your home in shape for the cooler temps ahead.

Check these tasks off your to-do list now to ensure comfort, safety, and energy efficiency all fall and winter long.

Windows

Unless your windows are properly sealed, they could be letting cold air in. Keep your home more comfortable and your heating costs down by applying weatherstripping around the edges. For old, drafty windows, consider coating the panes with insulating film to keep the cool air out and the warm air in.

Ducts

Living with leaky ductwork is like throwing money out the window. Improperly sealed ducts can lose as much as 30 percent of the heated air that passes through them. Inspect your ductwork for leaks and make any necessary repairs before the cold weather hits.

Insulation

Your home needs adequate insulation to help it keep out cold air in the winter and hot air in the summer. Check your attic, basement, and crawlspace insulation to make sure you have enough.

Fireplace

Before you build the first fire of the season, have the chimney professionally cleaned and inspected for cracks. If necessary, add or replace the chimney cap to keep out branches, debris, birds, and pests.

Bedding and Window Treatments

Now is a good time to bring out the cool-weather linens like flannel sheets, wool blankets, and down comforters. Similarly, swap the sun-loving window sheers for thicker window coverings like velvet and other heavy textiles.

Water Lines

Autumn is the perfect time to drain you sprinkler system of standing water, which can burst pipes as it freezes and expands. Similarly, disconnect hoses then drain and shut off outdoor faucets.

Filters

Perhaps the simplest and most effective thing you can do to prepare for cooler weather is change your furnace filter. A clogged, dirty, filter makes your heating system work harder to deliver warmed air. This overworks the system, leads to more frequent repairs, reduces equipment lifespan, and drives up energy bills. Change filters every 8 weeks or as recommended by the manufacturer.

Heating System Inspection & Tune-Up

Much like a car, your heating system requires regular maintenance to perform at its best. At Correct Temp, we cannot stress the importance of annual maintenance enough. These are just some of the benefits you’ll enjoy from our multi-step inspection and tune-up:
