Winterize your home
According to accuweather.com, cold air and high snow amounts will define the winter season in Northeast Ohio again this year.
Fall is already upon us, and winter is coming quickly.
It’s time to winterize your home.
Through heating maintenance, you can make your home safer and more comfortable in addition to reducing your heat bill this winter.
1. Check for leaks: Look for anywhere the heat can get out and the cold air can get in in your home such as doors and windows and fill cracks with silicone sealant. Be sure to also check your foundation for cracks.
2. Have your furnace and water heater serviced: Before winter arrives, make sure your furnace is operational, safe, and energy efficient. A&L Heating and Cooling HVAC technicians will inspect your furnace and water heater and all of their joints in addition to checking fixtures, vents, filters, and ductwork.
3. Install smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors: The chances of having a house fire greatly increase in the winter months, so make sure that your family is protected by replacing batteries in or replacing old smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
