Taking a few maintenance steps before winter can save you substantial money during the heating season. 

  • Schedule an annual inspection of your heating system.
  • Have heating ducts inspected and cleaned, if needed. 
  • Clean and replace filters on manufacturer’s recommended schedule.
  • Lower your thermostat 4-5 degrees while sleeping or when house is unoccupied.
  • Check your chimney and make sure your chimney damper is closed when not used.
  • Inspect weather-stripping on doors and windows, including garage doors.
  • Clean your gutters and ridge vents to prevent standing (freezing) water. 
  • Plug gaps around pipes, ducts, fans, and vents that go from unheated into heated spaces. 
  • Check for leaks in an unfinished basement or crawl space and add insulation to basement walls. Close foundation vents in crawl space. 
  • Check smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
