ABC Winter Heating Checklist

Posted on: November 24, 2015

1. Schedule your furnace tune-up. Keeping your furnace maintained will keep it running longer while helping it operate more efficiently.

2. Replace your furnace filter.

3. Turn down your thermostat to 68 degrees. For every degree you lower your heat in the 60-degree to 70-degree range, you’ll save up to 5 percent on heating costs.

4. Program your thermostat. If you’re on a regular schedule, set your thermostat to turn the temperature down when you’re not at home.

5. Reverse the direction of your ceiling fans to direct the warm air downward towards the living space.

6. Check your smoke and CO detectors. Replace the batteries as needed.

7. Ensure that air ducts are not covered or restricted by rugs or furniture.

8. Seal air leaks around windows and doors.

9. Keep your fireplace damper closed unless a fire is burning.
