News > Prepare your home for winter!

Cold weather will be here soon. Is your home ready?

Here are the top five tips to optimize your home's energy usage for winter:  

  1. Check and/or replace your air filter
  2. Make sure air vents and/or baseboard heaters are not blocked by anything in your home
  3. “Test drive” your HVAC system before the cold weather – listen for any odd noises or rattles
  4. Reverse the direction of your ceiling fans – they should run clockwise during the winter, drawing cool air upward and forcing warm air downward and counterclockwise in the summer
  5. Get your HVAC system inspected by a local contractor
