HomeTeam Inspection Service Provides Winter Home Preparation Tips

HomeTeam Inspection Service provides a list of 10 simple tips homeowners can use to prepare their homes for winter.

Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) December 08, 2012 - Winter is fast approaching and HomeTeam Inspection Service has a list of 10 simple tips homeowners can use to ensure that their homes are well prepared and more energy efficient throughout the coming months.

  • Inspect HVAC units and change furnace filters for maximum energy efficiency and cleaner air.
  • Turn down or program thermostats to lower temperatures while at work or sleeping.
  • Inspect around windows and doors for gaps and use caulk or weather stripping to seal any openings that could allow cold air and water to get in.
  • Assess the amount of insulation in your home because insufficient insulation can result in inflated energy costs.
  • Test batteries in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are working properly.
  • Visibly check the fireplace opening for loose or missing brick and have screens in place to protect from any embers that may escape.
  • Look for raised, loose or missing shingles, which can allow air and water to get in, and replace if needed.
  • Remove hoses from outside spigots and store for the winter months.
  • Clean debris from gutters to prevent water from collecting and freezing.
  • Reverse ceiling fan blades to push the rising hot air down and will help circulate it throughout the home.
