We are taking the following precautions due to the COVID-19 virus. All of our technicians have masks, glasses, latex gloves and shoe booties if they have to enter your home. Our technicians also have hand sanitizer and disinfectants that they use after every call.
If we are there to do maintenance and we don’t have to come inside your home to get to the equipment, we are asking homeowners to adjust the thermostat for us so we can do the system maintenance without entering the home. We will not be shaking hands and will keep our distance from customers.
Get Started On Winterizing Your Home Before The Temps Plunge
As winter approaches, don’t delay preparing your house for cold weather. The best time to begin winterizing your home is before the temperature drops, so here are some reminders to help you get started.
Furnaceinspection Don’t discover that your furnace isn’t working once the temperature drops and your house gets cold. Now’s the time to perform a routine inspection, which includes checking and changing the filters if necessary.
Prepare gutter and roof If water freezes in your gutters, it can damage not only the gutters but the roof as well.
To minimize any damage, insulate your attic so warm attic air doesn’t cause ice damming.
Hose out your gutters to remove debris and make sure the downspouts are unobstructed.
Installing leaf guards to the gutters or downspouts will direct water away from the house.
Don’t get caught with a leaking roof. Inspect its integrity and replace shingles or tiles that are in need of repair.
Seal air leaks One basic procedure for winterizing your home is to seal air leaks from windows and doors.
Use Weatherstripping around your external doors and apply door sweeps to the bottom.
Seal around pipes or any entry point that allows air leakage.
Check the outside of your house for crevices or cracks and seal with weather-resistant caulking.
