Home Care Tips

 
  Winter
  • Install a door sweep.
  • Caulk or apply weather-stripping around problem draft areas.
  • Clean gutters and downspouts in mid-fall and double-check them before winter.
  • Have chimneys and wood stoves cleaned early in the season.
  • Close the flue when your fireplace is not in use.
  • Move furniture away from vents, registers and radiators.
  • Open the drapes during the day for the free solar heat and close them just before sunset.
  • Change the filter on forced air units.
 
  Heating System
  • Check filters bi-annually.
  • Set your thermostat to 69° F or less during the day, 60° F or less at night (or when you leave your home for more than four hours).
  • Bundle up. Try putting on a sweater or throwing an extra blanket on the bed before you turn up the thermostat.
  • Bundle your home too. Exterior doors should be tightly shut and avoid frequent in-and-out traffic. Padded door runners help reduce drafts under doorways.
  • Use zone heating. Don't waste energy and money by heating a room you're not using. Close doors and/or vents to that room. To avoid damage to your central heating system, close no more than
      one fourth of the area of your home.
  • Use solar power. On sunny mornings, open your drapes on the eastern and southern windows of your home. In the afternoon, open your drapes for your western windows to get the most
      exposure to the sun.
