Start Preparing for Cold Weather

Labor Day signals the unofficial end of summer here in Draper, UT, and while fall won’t officially start for a few more weeks, it never hurts to plan ahead. Now is an excellent time to start preparing for the cold weather by giving your heating system a once-over and taking a few basic steps around your home. Some of these steps require the services of a professional technician, but you can perform most of them yourself with just a little time and money. We’ve spelled out a list of them below for you.

  • Clear Space Around Your Heater. If you haven;t used your heating system in a while, you may have stacked objects too close to the vents in the interim, or leaves and other detritus may have covered them. Clean your system off and set a space of at least two feet around it to stay clear.
  • Change the Filters. The filters in your heating system need to be changed once every 1-3 months at the least. You likely haven’t needed to during the summer, but now is an optimum time,
  • Schedule a Maintenance Session. You need to schedule a maintenance session from a professional at least once a year to keep your heater running efficiently and catch any potential problems before the weather gets too cold. Doing so now means your heater will be ready to go when the thermostat starts to fall.
  • Weather Stripping. If you have cracks around your doors or windows, the warm air created by your heater can leak out. Use weather stripping from the local hardware store to seal the cracks and help ease the strain on your heating system.

If you need a maintenance session with your heater, or repairs are required before winter starts, call the professionals at At Your Service Plumbing, Heating and Air today!
