Grand Lake Winter Heating Checklist

Winter is here in the Colorado mountains! If you haven't done so already, call us to schedule your heating system tune-up. Keeping your furnace maintained will keep it running longer while helping it operate more efficiently. To keep your home warm and safe on your heating bill, here are a few tips:
<br /><br />
  1. Replace your furnace filter. If it's been in use for more than a month, replace it.
  2. Turn down your thermostat to 68 degrees. For every degree you lower your heat in the 60-degree to 70-degree range, you'll save up to 5 percent on heating costs.
  3. Program your thermostat. If you're on a regular schedule, set your thermostat to turn the temperature down when you're not at home.
  4. Reverse the direction of your ceiling fans to direct the warm air downward towards the living space.
  5. Check your smoke and CO detectors. Replace the batteries as needed.
  6. Ensure that air ducts are not covered or restricted by rugs or furniture.
  7. Seal air leaks around windows and doors.
  8. Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning.
If you have problems with your heating system, give us a call anytime.
