Preventative Maintenance That You Need Before the Winter

November 4, 2015

We might not get winters as bad as some of the other places in the country but make no mistake that you want to have home heating when things get a little chilly outside. The colder months are the most important ones for your home heating. It’s when they earn their keep. Here are some forms of preventative maintenance that you need before the winter sets in.

Furnace Inspection

Your furnace is what keeps the home warm when the temperature drops so don’t spare any expense on this one. Get a professional to come in and give it a thorough inspection. We will check to make sure that everything is connected and functioning, that there are no leaks, and that everything is clean. Not only that, but we will make sure that the thermostat is set correctly and won’t over-burden you this winter with bills.

Ventilation check

Your vents are the infrastructure that your home heating system uses to deliver its product. They are the highways, byways, and roads that bring warm air to you. You need to make sure that they are in working condition. If you haven’t had an inspection before, then the chances that they are dirty and constricting the flow of air are nearly 100%. Not only will this give you higher bills, but it will also make your air dirty and stale.

Windows and doors

Wait, what? Yes, this is extremely important. You need to make sure that everything is sealed up correctly and that there aren’t any leaks. Leaks can really hurt your energy usage and make you pay higher bills. Not only is it bad for your HVAC system to be working harder than it has to, but it is also bad for your bank account. Get someone in to make sure that everything is sealed up properly.

The winter is coming. While we certainly don’t get them as bad as the rest of the nation, it still can get cold. You want to make that your home is ready to go. These are the preventative maintenance procedures that you need to have done before the winter. Taproots is the area’s most respected HVAC services provider, and we have years of experience in getting families ready to fight the cold.
