Preparing Your Home for Heating Season

Once again, summer has come and gone. As we are gearing up for the heating season, you may be wondering what you should be doing to prepare your home. Soon, you’ll be ready to turn on the heat in your house, and you’ll want to make sure that your unit is able to efficiently keep your home warm. To help you get your house ready for the cold days ahead, we’ve compiled a list of three things you’ll want to do.

1. Ensure There Are No Leaks in Home Exterior

If there are any leaks in your home’s exterior, heat will escape. This will lead to your unit working harder to keep your house cool, which will result in wasted energy and higher heating bills. Perform an inspection of the exterior of your home and fill in any leaks you may find. You can use caulk or weather stripping to make sure no heat will be wasted.

2. Clean Your Vents

If your air vents have become dusty or dirty, it is time to vacuum them clean. Dust and dirt can lead to clogged vents, which will result in a less efficient HVAC system.

3. Schedule a Tune-Up for Your HVAC Unit

Did you know that you should get an HVAC tune-up at least once a year? Regular servicing will help ensure that your unit is operating efficiently during the heating season. It will also catch any minor repair before it turns into a huge expense. The maintenance crew at Real HVAC Services can make sure that your system is ready to keep your home warm in the upcoming cooler months. Our technicians will do a full inspection and look for any lingering problems.
