When record breaking low temps and heavy snow are bearing down we wanted to let you know some important home and personal safety precautions. Extreme cold temperatures pose a challenge to physical structures themselves, as pipes may freeze and heating systems are continuously running.
Ensure your home heating system is ready to go.
One of the best ways to ensure that your heating system is ready to handle colder weather is to test your heating system before the winter season. Mark your calendar to test your heating system every September. This way it will ensure that it’s ready to heat your home as soon as you need it when temperatures drop. Also, get your heating system tuned up annually. This will not only help you save on your energy costs but make sure it’s running as efficiently as it can to keep you warm through a harsh winter.
