Extra tips for getting your home ready for winter
It’s a good idea to place plastic over the windows. This will help insulate the home, and keep warm air from escaping.
Reverse your ceiling fans from the default summertime setting (counter-clockwise) to clockwise. The fans will blow air upwards, displacing warm air that collects near the ceiling and redirecting it down into the room where occupants can feel it.
In climates like ours in northwest Arkansas, where winter temperatures often drop below freezing, getting your home ready for winter is a big task, but one that will significantly increase home comfort and and energy savings.
