Checklist to Prepare for Winter

Friday, November 3rd, 2017 by Amy Anderson


 

  1. Make sure you have a functioning carbon monoxide detector.   If the heat exchanger on your furnace becomes cracked, it can omit a deadly gas – carbon monoxide. What’s even scarier is that the gas is odorless and colorless.  Fortunately, carbon monoxide detectors are great at doing their job and can alert you immediately if there is any danger.
  2. Get your Furnace checked by a professional.  An HVAC technician will insure that your furnace is running properly and will also check to make sure there are no carbon monoxide leaks. The last thing that you want to happen in the middle of winter is for your furnace to breakdown.   
  3. Make sure your filters are changed regularly. When your filters are changed as advised, it helps allow for better air flow and helps the furnace to run more efficiently.
  4. Make sure that you have the proper insulation.  A lack of insulation and air leaks can allow cold air to seep into your home and also allow for heat to leave your home.  This in turn causes higher gas and electric bills as well as compromises your comfort.
  5. Open all cabinets to help prevent the freezing of your pipes on nights when it gets really cold.
  6. Make sure that older family, friends, and neighbors are prepared.  Make sure that they have everything they need for this winter.  Check their CO detectors to ensure the batteries are still operating, make sure they have plenty of blankets, and check that their heat is working properly.
