Putting together your home maintenance to-do list before the season’s change will give you plenty of time to plan and budget for improvements to your home, steps that will make it more comfortable during the heating season. Taking action to shield your home from the cold will pay off in fewer major repairs, reduced heating bills, and a longer life for your heating system.
- Lock your windows on a windy day and run your hand around the frames, sensing any air leaks. Use caulk to seal the frames.
- Check the weatherstripping around the exterior doors and window sashes and replace them if gaps exist.
- Schedule a tune-up for your heating system. HVAC professionals do a thorough job of cleaning, adjusting, and assuring its safety. Annual maintenance results in lower heating bills and increases the life of your system.
- Have a chimney sweep clean your fireplace and chimney.
