Tips for Winterizing Your Home


Everyone wants to stay warm during the winter. For most people that typically raising the temperature on our thermostat and running our heating system more. Some people throw on thicker clothing like sweaters and jackets, while other people just add extra layers of clothing. However, there are some simple steps you can take to winterize your home and stay warm without wearing five shirts and three pairs of pants.

One of the biggest ways people lose warm air is through drafts in doorways. The easiest solution is to lay a “draft snake” at the door to keep the hot air from escaping. Another simple, but very effective method to prepare for winter, is to change your furnace filters. Clean filters allow the air to flow more freely throughout your home.

Many ceiling fans can be run in reverse, which can help push warm air throughout a room instead of having it trapped near the ceiling. You can also winterize your air conditioning unit and your water lines to make sure they are protected when the temperature drops well below freezing.

These are just a few of the steps you can take to help winterize your home. If you have other questions or concerns regarding your heating and cooling in Hockinson WA then contact us today at Comfort air. Call (360) 706-1496 or click here.
