Cold weather is here, which means it is time to start shoveling snow, decorating for the holidays, and of course getting your home ready for frigid temperatures. If you live in Pennsylvania, this means getting in touch with your local heating company. Use this checklist as a guide to make sure you have taken care of the essentials that will keep your home safe and warm through another winter season.
Winter Checklist for Home Comfort
- Get an Annual Heating Tune-Up
During your annual tune-up, your service technician will conduct a thorough safety inspection and cleaning of your equipment. This will ensure that your boiler or furnace is operating safely and at its peak performance.
- Upgrade Your Heating System
If your oil or propane heating system is 15 years or older, it could be time for an upgrade. Installing a new boiler or furnace has many benefits. Mainly, homeowners can experience greater comfort, lower heating bills, and better indoor air quality.
- Sign Up for Automatic Delivery
Skip the stress of manually placing your fuel orders and scheduling deliveries around your busy schedule. With automatic delivery, your energy provider will monitor your fuel usage and create a custom fuel delivery schedule based on your needs.
- Install a Smart Thermostat
Installing a smart thermostat will help you save money and energy all winter. You can set your smart thermostat to adjust the temperature at different times of the day to help conserve energy. Also, the thermostat can be controlled from your mobile device, so you can adjust it anywhere, any time.
