Ensuring your home is ready for the upcoming winter should be a number one priority in the next few weeks. By winterizing the home, homeowners can cut down on utility costs and increase energy efficiency.
Fireplaces are used for warmth and holiday cheeriness during the colder months. Before its first use, have the chimney inspected and cleaned by a professional to ensure it’s in working order.
Use ceiling fans to your advantage all year round by setting each to rotate clockwise, forcing the warm air that is rising to move back toward the floor. This will keep the heat where it will do the most good, closest to the occupants of the home.
Finally, block drafts around the doors and windows with weatherstripping or window film to control heat loss.
