Preparing Your Home for Winter

HInsdale Addition

6 Easy Steps to Help Winterizing Your Home

1. Clean Your Gutters

Check that water can flow through your gutters to prevent icicles from forming later.

2. Flush the Water Heater

Flush the water through the drain valve to clear out the material and keep your heater functioning well.

3. Clockwise Ceiling Fans

Have your ceiling fans move in a clockwise direction so they push hot air along the ceiling towards the floor.

4. Replace Filters

Regularly changing the filters in your central air and heating system can significantly improve its efficiency and longevity.

5. Draft Guards

Draft guards can help save heat from escaping under the door. (If you don’t want to shell out for a draft guard, a rolled towel placed at the bottom of an exterior door will also do the trick.)

6. Programmable Thermostat

Install a programmable thermostat now and save money by keeping the temp down when you’re asleep or not at home.
