Get Ready to “Fall” Into Cooler Temperatures… And A Preventative Maintenance Plan With Action Air Clarksville!
It’s that time of year again! We’re ready to pack the flip-flops away and dig out the old boots! Cooler temperatures are on their way, and it’s being predicted that this winter will be a cold one! It may only be September, but it’s never too early to start preparing for those chilly evenings ahead! Here are a few great tips to keep your family warm, your heating unit functioning and your bank account happy!
- Purchase drapes this season to use at night. Closing them traps the heat inside, keeping your family warm and your energy bill down. But don’t forget to open the south-facing window treatments during the day to let the warm sunlight in!
- Purchase heavy-duty, clear plastic sheets to adhere over your window frames. This reduces infiltration of cold air.
- If you’re thinking about planting new trees… now is the time! Selecting larger trees that lose their leaves in the winter will allow the sun through… but will shade your house when summer rolls back around.
- Don’t forget to change those air filters! New ones will allow your heating unit to run more efficiently as the colder months approach us.
More importantly, be sure to schedule a Fall Heating System Maintenance appointment with Action Air Clarksville. Not only will a surprise malfunction this winter make life cold and uncomfortable, but lack of heat (for even a few hours) can cause pipes to freeze and burst which will lead to costly repairs. (Did we mention a seasonal tune-up could save you approximately 10% on your heating bill this winter?)
