Preparing Your Home for Winter
There are many different steps you can take to prepare for winter in the Baltimore area, but we’ve outlined some of the more important ones for you.
- Remove all window air conditioners
- Have your furnace, heat pump, and heating systems inspected
- Schedule your annual service calls and tune-ups
- Change your filters
- Clean your ducts
- Check the fireplace, windows, and doors for drafts
- Clean your humidifier
- Replace outdated thermostats with programmable thermostats
- Reverse your fans
- Clean your gutters
- Make sure your home is properly insulated and ventilated
If you find that your existing heating system or furnace isn’t working properly during your annual inspection, you should also schedule repairs or install an energy efficient replacement, as needed—and the sooner the better to avoid any unexpected surprises in weather! Maintenance calls and timely replacements can also help you keep your monthly energy bills down through the colder months, especially if you upgrade an older system with a more energy efficient product.
