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   Got more tips for us? TELL US!Share, tweet, and pin :)
