Take the Time to Caulk Around Your Windows

Well, we are nearing the end of summer and the cold realities of winter will soon be upon us. Granted, I live in the southern climate, so winter is not the all-consuming mass of freezing weather that it is in the more northern areas of our country. Nonetheless, we do see some colder weather where we are warned to wrap our pipes and drizzle the tap water to keep our pipes from bursting overnight. This means that it is the perfect time to do some things to help out your heating and cooling system. First off, get a thorough HVAC inspection, followed by an HVAC tune-up. Your HVAC system is mechanical and has moving parts. Any machinery with moving parts needs to be maintained, and your heating and cooling devices are no different. If you don’t have an HVAC maintenance contract with a local heating and cooling company, you should consider getting one. After the HVAC inspection and maintenance, take the time to caulk around the windows. It is very common to lose heated air through the gaps around the window sashes. Also you let in the cold outside air. Your furnace will thank you too! And be sure you have changed the air filter and cleaned the a/c air vents, as well. Be sure your HVAC guy checks the ductwork, as well. You don’t want to heat your air only to have it end up making its way to the outside world. I one time had to replace all the ductwork in the crawl space beneath my house because feral cats got under there and destroyed the ducts. They made themselves very comfortable lives under there while I was unaware of why my utility bill was so high.
