Blog, Furnace, Heating, HVAC, Maintenance, OH, Ohio, Tips & Tricks, Troy, Winter

Even though homes were built for people, unfortunately, if you don’t care for your house, it can deteriorate pretty quickly. So because of this, it is essential to winterize your home and keep up with regular maintenance. Then, each fall, you’ll have an excuse to stay busy and not attend that event you didn’t really want to go to. Here we have a few items below from our five-star technicians at Troy Furnace & Air Conditioning put together. This way, you stay prepared for the winter. 

  • Paint, Caulk, and Seal Exterior Wood- All of the wood trim on the exterior of your home needs to be protected from the elements. The best thing to do is to make sure you’re keeping it painted and caulked. If not, it will rot. So take the time going around your house, making sure that none of the caulk is cracking and your paint is not chipping and flaking away. 
  • Clean Your Gutters- Most homeowners put cleaning your gutters off for months, but cleaning them at least annually is recommended. Several things can get stuck inside your gutters, causing unnecessary expenses elsewhere. 
  • Invest in a Programmable Thermostat- This is a program that is used to run when it is not needed. It was found the best temperature to keep your thermometer on is 68 degrees. This will keep your home comfy, plus save you money on your monthly utility bill. 
  • Be Roof Ready- Clear out leaves, dirt and look for damaged shingles. You can also walk around to check for any water leakages. These are all signs something is going on with your roof, so pay close attention.
  • Protect Windows From Heat Loss- Drapes are popular curtains residents use to have good coverage from their windows. It is also great for keeping cold air from coming through. You should find a good pair of these at a local Walmart.

Paying attention to the small things and conducting these things each year will ensure that you can get through the winter with little to no issues.
