Here are some ideas and tips to get your home winterized and ensure its air is clean and the home is energy efficient during those chilly winter months.
- Duct Cleaning - removes 5 to 6 pounds of dirt from a home's heating and cooling system and should be done every four or five years.
- Filter Cleaning - This includes furnaces and central air conditioning systems which should be checked annually by a licensed professional and the filters should be replaced or cleaned every three months. This will help to prevent breakdowns.
- System replacement - Often older furnaces and central air conditioning systems work well enough to do the job but it is worth considering the installation of a new system before the old one wears out. Today's technology provides you with the opportunity to lower your electricity consumption and energy costs as well.
