Prepping Your HomeWith winter right around the corner, it’s important to make sure your Hampton, Virginia, home is ready. Contact your HVAC professional for help with prepping your home, so you’ll be ready for whatever winter has in store.

Make the Small Changes

Small changes in your home can make a big difference this winter. Start by adjusting all your ceiling fans to winter mode. A little switch on your fan changes the rotation. Making the switch so that the blades spin in a clockwise direction will help to circulate the warm air downward. Consider buying weatherstripping for your doors to keep the warm air in and the cold air out. Program your thermostat to manage the changing temperatures and the cold nights of winter or consider buying space heaters for smaller areas. These changes, even though minor, will save you money and keep your family comfortable this winter.

Plumbing Problems

Make sure all your garden hoses are turned off and emptied, so those pipes don’t freeze. Avoid potential water damage and plumbing problems before winter strikes by cleaning out your gutters. Doing so will prevent water and ice blocked by leaves and debris from causing damage to your home. You can call in the experts or take on this project yourself.
