Just because we live in Florida doesn’t mean we don’t need heaters in the winter! Make sure yours is ready for the cooler weather.
Living in Florida, we don’t experience winter the way most of the rest of the country does, but that doesn’t mean that we don’t need our heating systems! Airpliance understands the importance of a functional heater, even in Florida. Your comfort matters to us, so make sure your system is ready for the cooler weather.
Preparing for the Florida Winter
As we head into the cooler months, here are a few tips from Airpliance to ensure that your heater will be ready to work when you need it to.
- Check the air filter. It might seem like we say this a lot, but the air filter really is that important. A dirty filter will have your whole system working harder than necessary, costing you more on your utility bill.
- Seal any leaks. Cracks under doors, uncovered windows, insufficient insulation… all these things will let your warm air just flow right out. Use weatherstripping and caulk to seal up cracks and keep cold windows covered.
- Maintain the ductwork. Many people overlook their ductwork when preparing for the winter – out of sight, out of mind, after all! However, your home can lose as much as 20 percent of its heating before it ever reaches you if the ducts are in poor shape.
- Turn down the thermostat. How warm does your house really need to be? If you can adjust the temperature downwards by just a couple of degrees you can decrease the energy used and therefore your utility bill. Throw on a sweater and save some money!
