How to Keep Your Family Warm and Save Money

Home Improvement

Temperatures are dropping lower and lower. That's fine, as long as your family is comfortable and cozy inside your home. You should keep your furnace running in peak condition so your family doesn't have to suffer the consequences should the furnace go out. If your furnace doesn't seem to be running as effectively as it should, furnace repair service in Minneapolis can help.

Keep Up on Preventative Maintenance

The best way to make sure your furnace doesn't break down in the middle of a freezing winter night is to keep up on the maintenance of your furnace. Get your furnace serviced before you have to turn on your furnace to avoid having to wait potentially weeks to get your furnace fixed in the middle of winter when you are all shivering. This can also potentially save you money as they will ensure your furnace is running efficiently.

Change Dirty Filters

Sometimes the reason your heater isn't blowing as well as it should is because the filter needs to be changed. Filters should be replaced as often as every three months. This will improve the air quality in your home as well as allow the heat to blow more forcefully.

Let in Sunlight

Another way to help keep your house warm is to open the blinds and curtains during the day to let the sunlight in to help warm your house. When the sun sets, however, you should close your blinds and curtains to keep the heat in.

Keep All Vents Clear

Make sure all your vents are open and aren't blocked by furniture. It's also best to make sure bulky furniture isn't right next to your vents so the air can flow more freely. 

Utilize Winter Setting on Ceiling Fans

Often ceiling fans remain motionless during the winter months. However, ceiling fans aren't just for cooling. In the summer months they should be turning counter-clockwise. In the winter, if you change the direction to clockwise, the blades of the fan will push the heat that collects at the ceiling back down into the room, helping your home stay warm.

Dress for Winter Inside

You can reduce heating costs and keep your family warm at the same time by making sure everyone is dressing in appropriate winter attire. This does not mean everyone should be bundled up in their winter coats, but they should be wearing socks, long sleeved shirts, light sweaters, pants, etc. If everyone is wandering around in their shorts and tank tops, you are going to have to keep your home at a higher temperature.

Seal Windows and Doors

Make sure heat isn't escaping and cold air entering your home through leaks around the windows and doors. Replace any old weather stripping. Many people will caulk around window frames. If air is escaping though the threshold of the door, make sure the gasket doesn't need to be replaced.

Shut Doors and Use a Space Heater

Keep a room you spend a lot of time in warmer by shutting the door and utilizing a space heater. Of course, you have to be careful especially around small children and pets, and you have to make sure nothing is around the space heater that could start a fire.

Call Immediately for Repairs

If your furnace doesn't seem to be heating your home as well as it should, call a furnace repair service professional as soon as possible to prevent your family from suffering in the cold. Technicians will give you an estimate before fixing anything without your approval.

You can keep your family comfortable and warm during the winter months without breaking the bank. Call a specialist in furnace repair service in Minneapolis if your family isn't feelings as warm and as cozy as possible.
