Comfy Settings

When it’s nice out, try opening your windows or running your fans instead of your A/C. Turn your blinds upward to block out the afternoon heat.

 

 

Filter Check

Replacing your air filters regularly can help keep your heater and A/C running smooth all year. Swap it out more often if you have pets.

Simple Tips to Prepare for Winter
  • Flip fans: Running fans clockwise in the winter helps push warm air down into the room to use heat more efficiently.
  • Get a tune-up: Have your heating system serviced regularly to keep it running efficiently.
  • Seal leaks: Check for leaks around doors and windows where warm air can escape. Use caulk and weather stripping to seal any openings.
  • Trim trees: Cut back branches near your roof to avoid damage from ice and snow, and clean your gutters to avoid water damage during a freeze.
  • Test detectors: Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and change their batteries each year.
