Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) November 10, 2012
With this winter forecasted to be colder than the average winter in the Triangle area, it is important to be prepared. According to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, the coldest periods will be in January and February with the highest snow and ice threats in December, January and February. With decreasing temperatures, many residents also look for ways to save on heating costs. Expert Express of Raleigh, the local experts in heating and cooling, is prepared to help the residents of Raleigh and the surrounding areas prepare their homes for the upcoming winter season.
To help prepare for the cold weather there are certain things to consider. Make sure the home is properly insulated and weatherized. Keep doors and windows closed as much as possible and seal up any unused rooms to keep cold air out. Check all exterior doors for air leaks and caulk as needed. Also, make sure the thermostat is installed properly and set it lower at night and when the home is unoccupied.
It is also important to have the furnace inspected and tuned up by a heating professional. Some residents may not notice there is a problem, or that their furnace or heating system is not working until they turn it on again. Now, before winter hits, is the perfect time to have the heating system checked. When in use, replacing or cleaning the furnace filters once a month will also help reduce energy use and costs.
