Your October Maintenance Tip!
Dated: October 1 2019
As winter approaches, consider fortifying your home against the cold to keep your family comfortable.
Step 1: Beware the draft
Use weather stripping in window sills and door jambs. For more permanent leaks, such as around your window or door frame, use caulking. The most severe draft often comes from the gap under your doorway. Stop-up this drafty gap with a “draft snake.”
Step 2: Insulate
Insulation doesn’t just go between the walls. The addition of heavy drapes or air-cushion blinds in the winter keeps the warm air in and the cold air out. Don’t forget to insulate your water heater and hot water pipes.
Step 3: Circulate
Flip the switch on the side of your ceiling fan? when it gets cold and your fan will reverse, pulling cooler air up and pushing warmer air down into the room.
Step 4: Deduct
Invest in an Energy Star-certified solar water heater. Not only will this equipment pay for itself over time due to increased efficiency, but you may also receive a tax credit for up to 30% of the cost.
Step 5: Wear a sweater
Keep it simple — turn down the thermostat and donning a sweater to capture and retain body heat.
