St. Louis Heating: Winterizing Tips

December 19, 2012


Making sure your furnace is working properly this winter is essential for the safety, health and comfort of your family.

Scott-Lee Heating wants to help you winterize your home so you are prepared for this winter that is coming fast upon us. This is the best time to think about getting your home ready for these coming months. Here are some tips on winterizing your home:

  1. Furnace Inspection: By keeping your furnace and ducks clean, this will help keep your monthly payment down and will keep flammable materials from your furnace area. Buying new filters and changing them monthly will keep dust out of your furnace area.
  2. Fireplace: Making sure the cap/screen is correctly on the top of your chimney, and sweeping your chimney will save yourself from more work later on. Inspecting your fire place is very important as well.
  3. Doors and Windows: Inspecting the exposed areas of your house and making sure all cracks are covered so cold air will not enter and your heat will not escape. Keep in mind any cracks that may be in windows and doors, should be replaced too to help keep the weather out.
  4. Inspect roofs and gutters and foundation: Keeping gutters up to date will help keep rain damage away from your windows and doors and your foundation, which will prevent other weather damage in the winter.

Making sure your furnace is working properly this winter is essential for the safety, health and comfort of your family and the efficient operation of your furnace.
