BRRRR! It’s cold out there! The cold weather is officially here and besides bundling yourself up to stay warm, winterizing your home (especially your furnace) should be top priority! Your furnace is an essential in cold weather so making sure that it’s prepared for the coldest months of the year is important. Here are some tips on how to prepare your system for the rest of the winter.
Sometimes, certain rooms in your home don’t warm up as quickly as you need them to, or they always feel drafty and cool. If this is a constant problem in your home, this could indicate that there is a problem with leaky ductwork. Because ductwork is often unseen, many homeowners simply don’t think about it and in turn, take it for granted. But, ductwork is in fact a very vital part to the efficiency and effectiveness of an HVAC system and ducts must be in great working order for your system to properly heat your home during the cold fall and winter months. Over time, ducts can develop cracks or holes and this means that they simply aren’t able to deliver warm air efficiently.
