Winter has barely begun and we’ve already seen snow! The temperature is about to take a nosedive, and we want to make sure you stay warm in your home. Here are some tips on how to make the most out of the heat in your home:

  1. Keep interior doors open to allow heat to circulate.
  2. Add weather stripping around doors and caulk windows to guard against cold breezes and heat loss. Here are some step-by-step instructions on how to weather strip your doors.
  3. Have your furnace or boiler checked by a professional at least once a year, and clean your furnace filter.
  4. If you only use one room at a time, use a space heater rather than heat the whole house.
  5. Keep extra blankets on hand in your living room and bedrooms.
  6. Stock up on hot chocolate. We know this has nothing to do with looking after your home, but it’s still a great idea.
