Can you believe summer is almost over? We may still have a few more hot summer days, but cooler weather is on the way. Follow these tips to help you save energy and keep your home warm and cozy during cooler months.
Schedule Your Heating System Tune-Up
One of the best things you can do for the efficiency and effectiveness of your heating system is to get it maintained by a professional before the cold weather arrives. When your Jamison, PA, Wackenhut technician visits your home, they will perform a thorough examination of your furnace or boiler. The heating technician ensures your system is ready to give you the warmth you'll need when the winter weather arrives. An annual tune-up can also uncover any small issues that can be resolved before they become larger problems. Most importantly, a Wackenhut tune-up will improve the overall efficiency of your system, lower your energy bills, prolong the life of your equipment and keep your family comfortable all winter long!
Clean or Change the Filters
Did you know that the filters in your furnace need to be changed regularly? If they have been neglected, make sure to check them right away. Certain types of filters need to be cleaned or replaced every 90 days. You might need to clean or change your filter more often if you run your system more frequently. Changing or cleaning your filters ensure they're not clogged with dirt or debris and keep your system operating at peak efficiency. Another benefit is the improved indoor air quality that comes from removing airborne allergens and contaminants.
Seal Air Leaks
Help your furnace or boiler do its job more effectively and efficiently by sealing air leaks. Caulking or weatherstripping around leaky doors or windows helps keep the cold air out of your home and reduce heat loss. When warm air escapes from these cracks it forces your heating system to work hard, leading to an increase in your energy costs. Sealing air leaks is a simple, inexpensive way to reduce energy waste while keeping your family comfortable.
