- Change the direction of your ceiling fans. Clockwise rotation produces warmer air.
- Install storm doors. Cracks in your door are increasing the air flow in and out of your home. Installing a storm door can seal those drafts and help reduce air flow.
- Control your thermostat. Set your thermostat to 65 degrees when you go to bed and work. You won’t enjoy the warmer temperature while you’re asleep or away from the house, anyway. You can also purchase a programmable thermostat.
- Change Furnace Filters. Replace or clean furnace filters between one and three months during the heating season. Dirty filters restrict airflow and increases energy demand.
- Clean Your Gutters. Making sure that water can flow freely through your gutters now will help prevent icicles and ice dams from forming later.
Hi folks, its that time of year, colder days ahead means doing those seasonal chores necessary to prepare your home for the winter months. - Joe
