Your fall home heating checklist

Fall is here and that means that it’s time to get your home ready for the coming winter! Here are tips from our NJ plumbing supply company on making sure your home’s heating system is in good shape.

  • Seal your home using exterior caulk: An inexpensive and effective fix, exterior caulk is ideal for sealing cracks in your home’s window and door frames, between trim and sliding, and where your pipes and wires enter your home. These cracks let in cold and moisture, so sealing them up preserves the condition of your home, keeps you warm and reduces energy bills.
  • Service your furnace: You’re going to want your furnace working well when the snow hits, so take the time to have it professionally serviced, repaired or replaced if needed. The fall is a slower time for furnace repairs, so don’t wait for winter when their services are in high demand.
  • Check out your fireplace: A fire burning in the hearth is a cozy and wonderful winter experience – but only if your fireplace is in good shape. Use a flashlight to check for any chimney blockages, check the firebox for damaged or missing brick or mortar and get the professionals in for a flue sweep every second year.
  • Roof inspection: The condition of your roof is pivotal to the warmth of your home, from preventing leaks to trapping warm air from leaving the structure. A roof inspection is an affordable and safe way to have your structure properly checked for loose tiles, worn insulation and leaks.
