As temperatures begin to decrease, it’s important to prepare your home for the upcoming winter. Taking steps to keep your home protected from dropping temperatures before it gets too cold outside can help you avoid damage, so be sure to follow these tips for preparing your home for winter from a professional heating contractor.
- Turn off your sprinkler system. Your sprinkler system is great for keeping your yard green during the warmer months, but as colder months approach, your sprinkler will be more of a burden if it’s still turned on. Most sprinkler systems have freeze sensors to help you avoid damage due to freezing water, but it’s a good idea to check them out just in case.
- Clean out your gutters. Leaves and other debris clog your gutters over time. These clogs can become a big problem during winter, as any water that gets in your gutters can freeze when temperatures get too low and cause the clogs to worsen or damage your gutter system.
- Make sure your heating system works. You don’t want to be trapped in a freezing home when it’s cold outside because your heating system isn’t working, so have a heating contractor inspect your heating system and perform any maintenance or repairs before you start using this system more often.
Being prepared is the key to keeping you warm and your home protected when the colder months come. If you want to make sure that your home’s heating system is in good condition and ready to heat your home, call us here at Air On Time AC and ask for a heating contractor to scope out your system.
