Winter Heating Tips

  1. It is important to have your heating systems serviced every year for proper operation. Gas furnaces can emit carbon monoxide which is a poisonous gas that can be fatal. Electrical furnaces need the electrical systems checked for safety of your family.
  2. Replacing your filters on a monthly basis increases the efficiency that your furnace operates at, and a clean furnace is a safe furnace.
  3. Air leakage from windows, doors and electrical boxes can be a huge source of energy loss in your home. Simple insulators and sealers can save on energy consumption.
  4. Cover attic ventilators to help retain heat during the winter months.
  5. By installing programmable thermostats heating costs can be cut during times when away from home and at night.
  6. Air cleaners and purifiers can remove allergens and microbes your standard filter cannot remove.
