Take Precautions to Protect Your Home
Although we have been experiencing warmer than normal weather up to this point, the (terrible) truth is that the winter is coming and it’s shaping up to be very cold.
When the weather is below freezing, nothing beats having a nice warm home to hide away in. However, something always goes wrong at the worst time, like during a blizzard or a sub-zero winter night.
When this happens, your family can be stuck in a freezing cold house, waiting for help to arrive.
At ServiceMark Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, we believe in the ‘better safe than sorry’ philosophy. With this approach, we strive to avoid the inconvenience, extra expenses and sometimes even health issues that are caused by a malfunctioning heating system.
This winter, don’t wait for something to break – proactively ensure that your home’s heating system is functioning properly and ensure you and your family are protected during the upcoming cold, winter months.
Not only can your heating system malfunction, but also other problems, such as frozen pipes, leakages and more, can surface.
Top 10 things you can do to prepare for the upcoming winter months:
- Clean your heater – you should have a licensed HVAC contractor thoroughly clean your heater
- Change your heater filters
- Purchase a service agreement for your home HVAC systems. ServiceMark Solutions offers several different service agreements that cover parts and labor if you have an unexpected breakdown
- Add or increase attic and/or basement insulation
- Insulate your windows
- Reverse your ceiling fan directions to blow downward, sending the heat down from the ceiling
- Clear all outside vents of snow buildup
- Ensure your carbon monoxide detector is plugged in and has fresh batteries
- Check your smoke alarms and batteries – these should be replaced every 6 months
