family-holding-a-green-houseThe cold weather is on its way. If you’re trying to get your home prepared for the imminent low temperatures, we’d like to help. You know your heating in Aubrey, TX is important in the same way that we do. What you might not know is what to do to get your heating system in shape for the coming season. That’s why we’re here!

Today, we’re going to walk through some great tips that our experts have stockpiled throughout the years. Preparing yourself for cold weather shouldn’t be something you feel is a burden or a huge ordeal. There are simple things you can do. Start with these…

Check In with Your Thermostat

The first thing you’re going to need to do is check in with your thermostat. What type of thermostat do you have? If you don’t have an up-to-date system, you’re not getting the best possible thermostat. At this stage in the game, we suggest that you have a Wi-Fi or smart thermostat. This is one of the best things you can get for yourself if you want to improve your efficiency, keep your home comfortable, and have a long-lasting system.

We also suggest you check on the placement of your thermostat. Your thermostat should be placed on an interior wall. It should be out of the line of direct sunlight, away from a hallway, and not too close to your kitchen. If your thermostat isn’t placed correctly, we suggest that you consider moving it to get more accurate temperature readings. 

Call for Your Maintenance Appointment

This is the perfect time to call us for a maintenance appointment. Maintenance will keep your heater in proper shape so that it can warm your entire home throughout the winter. If you’re ready to go the extra mile, we suggest that you ask about our maintenance plan when you enroll too.  

Move Your Furniture

Make sure that you’re moving your furniture that you can get the best heating services possible. We suggest you start with bigger pieces of furniture like your sofa, table, or even bookshelves. Make sure they’re not in front of any vents so that you can airflow from them.

Get Your Fan Involved

Did you know that you can also use your home’s fan during the winter? There’s typically a switch at the base of the fan that allows you to reverse the direction of rotation of the fan blades. Reversing the flow of the fan will push warm air down into the living space and allow for a faster spread of warmth through a room.

Know When You Need More

One of the most important things you can do is know exactly what heating problems you’re dealing with. If you’re dealing with a real issue that causes comfort problems in your home, it’s important to know when you need more. There are some issues that maintenance can’t handle, and in those cases you’ll require professional assistance. Rely on us the fast and effective heating repair.
