Autumn will officially start soon and that means it's also time to get yourself ready for the cold season. Good thing, there are steps you can do to cut down your utility cost and keep your family warm.
Check Your Furnace & Heating System
Minimize the chances of breakdowns and system inefficiencies with a regular furnace tune up service in your Lehi home. Don't wait until it's too late to fix and change your busted or defective unit, or else you'll end up freezing throughout the chilly days.
Scan Through Your Roof
Search for any missing, damaged or loose shingles to prevent the entry of cold breeze. If you spot any of those, be sure replace or fix it immediately. While you're at it, don't forget to clean up the surface to protect the integrity of your roof.
Caulk Your Windows & Doors
Gaps on your window and door frames will definitely let in outside air, so be sure to caulk and seal them up. Install weather-stripping whenever necessary to block the possible entry of winter breeze, as well as maintain the warm air inside your home.
Ready Your Winter Tools
Prepare your snow blowers, shovels, and other ice-clearing equipment months before the season starts. This is to ensure that you have everything you need and they are working properly.
Clean Your Chimney & Fireplace
Winter is surely the time that your fireplace will be put into work. If you want to enjoy the benefits of having one, might as well pay attention to it. Clear your chimney and vents to avoid fire and prevent trapping carbon monoxide into your home, which could harm you and your family.
Enjoy a warm and cozy winter break with these simple suggestions. Along with these tips, be sure to dress properly to keep yourself warm even when you’re outside your home.
