Tips to Optimize Your Heating this Winter
Don’t stress, none of these are big time-eaters or expensive. We’re about making things simpler for you—and more cost-effective! To maximize your comfort and heating power this year, be sure to:
- Change your air filters. Air filters play a critical role in healthy air flow, which is one of the primary keys to effective, quality heating at a reasonable cost. For the best results, use an air filter with a MERV rating of 5 or higher and change it every two months at least.
- Clean and clear your vents (and home). For similar reasons to those listed above, clean vents and a dust-free home can play an important part in keeping your furnace or heat pump working efficiently and effectively. To get the most out of this tip, dust weekly and do a thorough carpet/fabric cleaning at the top of the season.
- Weatherize windows. Winterizing kits are pretty cheap at the hardware store, but if you prefer smaller solutions a caulk gun, rope caulk, or felt weather strips can do just as well. We recommend this because windows (and doors) are one of the biggest sources of thermal loss for your home and can lead to a lot of costly wasted heating. It’s fast, it’s easy, and it can save you a ton!
- Get professional maintenance. All of these tips are important, but as furnace maintenance specialists, we can say without a doubt that professional care is the number one most important thing to pursue as a homeowner. Not only will it minimize the risks of a breakdown mid-season, but it will ensure your heating works at its best and most cost-effective all year long.
Professional Maintenance & Care Plans
A preferred customer maintenance plan is the ideal way to get all of the assurance you need for your furnace or heat pump system. Why? Because it guarantees you get care when you need it most, which is not just every now and then, but best when gotten on a routine basis. In addition, maintenance plans offered by professionals like the team at North Town Home Services always feature really good benefits, helping you to save on both money and stress!
