3 Tips for Winterizing Your Home

furnace-not-working

Oct. 7, 2014 — Winter is coming! Check out these 3 simple and inexpensive tips for winterizing your home.

 

#1 Check the furnace

Turn your furnace on to make sure it’s working properly and expect a strong smell when firing up the furnace for the first time. Also, replace furnace filters once a month during the heating season to increase airflow.

 

#2 Reverse the fan

Reverse the direction of the ceiling fans, counter-clockwise, to push warm air downward and force it to recirculate, keeping you warmer.

 

#3 Wrap those pipes

To prevent frozen pipes, wrap exposed plumbing with pre-molded foam rubber sleeves. In warmer climates, you can install Styrofoam cups to help insulate outdoor spigots.FrozenPipes_10411
