Now that Labor Day has come and gone, fall is officially upon us. That means foliage, an abundance of pumpkins everywhere you look, and cooler temperatures in the air. And those cooler temperatures mean that winter will be here before we know it.
With winter just around the corner, it’s time to prepare your home heating system for the inevitable colder temperatures that are going to hit. Here are some things you should do now that it’s fall to make sure you’re ready for the cold season:
Check your thermostat. Make sure it’s working properly and make sure you know how to program it. Programming your thermostat correctly will both heat your home properly and will save you money when it comes to your heating bill.
Make a heating service appointment. In order for your heating system to run correctly, it requires routine and regular maintenance and servicing. Scheduling a maintenance appointment now will ensure that you’re properly prepared and ready for winter. If a technician finds a problem during a fall service appointment, you’ll have time to fix it or make any necessary upgrades before we’re hit with really severely cold temperatures.
Fix anything that needs to be repaired and make any necessary upgrades. The time to do this is not in the middle of winter – it’s the fall. That way, you avoid running into any heating problems when you really need your heat to be working at full force. Scheduling a technician to make any necessary repairs can be a challenge come winter as their schedules get extremely busy and it becomes a hassle to find an appointment that works with your schedule so don’t hold off.
