How To Keep Your House Warm In Winter?


Warmth is essential on cold winter days. It's easy to forget the importance of this necessary quality at first glance, especially when you're feeling cozy in bed reading about how it's supposed to be cold outside (and not considering what happens if your power goes out). HVAC systems have been known to have notable power outages in the winter, so if you keep your house warm during these times, you'll be helping to ensure a smoother ride for everyone. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to keep your house warm on those chilly winter mornings. Here are some tips how to do it:

1. Install a Programmable Thermostat

One of the best things you can do for your heating bill is to install a programmable thermostat. It's simple to install and can save you money in the long run, even if it means taking a professional approach to other budget-cutting steps first.

2. It's Closed-Flue Season, so Minimize Those Romantic Fires

We might not consider it romantic, but if you have flickering fires getting hot under your fingernails, it's time to put on a sweater and get to work.

3. The Spin on Ceiling Fans

The ceiling fan can be a double-edged sword. Not only does it offer a nice luxury for your home, but it's also designed to help warm the air and make your house feel more comfortable, even during the winter months.

4. Move Furniture Away From Vents, Registers, and Radiators

Furniture placed too close to heating registers, vents, or radiators can cause a lot of unwanted heat. Keep them far away to reduce the amount of heat they generate and save some money in the end.

5. Stop the Draft, Close the Door

Make sure your doors and windows are properly closed. Drafts in the wrong places can make a significant impact on your house's temperature, especially if you have a lot of windows or just one area that has terrible insulation.

6. Install a Door Sweep

A door sweep is a simple solution that prevents drafts on your doors and helps prevent air leaks in the home. Install it to prevent drafty doors and prevent cold air from leaving the house.

7. Quick-Seal Windows

A few problems can occur when installing new windows, but the most frustrating is air leaks. Luckily, there are a lot of quick fixes that you can use to prevent these annoying and wasted leaks.

There's nothing better than being warm and cozy in your own home. With a few easy steps, you can stop chattering teeth, take off your jacket, and get back to what you were doing.

FAQ

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.

  • What is a heat pump?

    Heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one quarter of the cost of operating conventional heating or cooling appliances.

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Water is Leaking on my Furnace

    Water falling on to the furnace can harm your heating unit by affecting the control boards and other components enclosed in the furnace. There can be many causes to the water overflow, but the most common cases in the summer is the ice build up inside the evaporator coil due to low refrigerant level. Water build up can also be due to the evaporator coil having a crack on the base, if this is the case contact us by booking an appointment or call us today to have a technician come have a look at your unit and repair this issue before it causes excessive damage.
