Don’t Get Left Out in the Cold This Winter

If you’re someone who does not think of their heating system until it’s time to turn up the thermostat, you may be surprised to learn that it could use some more attention. Don’t wait until it is too late to assess your heating situation. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you stay warm and cozy all winter long:
Professional Service- Your heating unit should be periodically checked by a professional to make sure it stays consistent and efficient.
Change filters– Checking furnace filters every couple of months will keep your heat flowing freely and save you money.
Smart Thermostats– Programmable thermostats such as the Nest can give you ultimate temperature control and save you money and energy.
Safety First– Furnaces tend to end up in cluttered rooms like basements. Periodically clean the space around your furnace can help to avoid a fire hazard. Make sure your home is equipped with fire and carbon monoxide detectors and always make sure to have your chimney professionally cleaned.
