Make sure your home is ready for the snowy season
Staying warm is a huge concern in winter, so having the heating system checked out by a technician is always a good idea. You don't want to wait until it's 10 below and have your furnace malfunction. We ate Green Apple Mechanical have experts who come with references and certifications that can be verified. On your own, change the filter and continue to change it monthly through the winter to keep the furnace in good working order.
After you have checked out all your heat-generating systems, cleaned out their vents and chimneys, it's time to work on keeping the heat that is generated contained. Heat rises, so a simple strategy, if you have ceiling fans, is to make sure they are turning clockwise to push the warm air down into the room. Next review your insulation to see that it is in place and doing its job. Plug up any cracks made by plumbing and electrical service entering or exiting the house. Review gaskets and caulking on doors and windows to see if it needs replaced or renewed. All these small strategies could add up to a lower heat bill in the midst of winter.
Water is one of the most necessary things we humans must have in our lives, but it can also be one of the most destructive. As you do your pre-winter review, remember what plumbing tended to freeze and either wrap pipes with the proper tape or insulate them from the dregs of the weather. Drain hoses and turn water taps off that lead to the outside as these are easy targets for the "freeze and break" game.
Clean out the gutters so water can easily flow. This can prevent frozen dams on your roof that can destroy roofing and cause leaks. While you are cleaning out the gutters, give your roof a once-over to make sure there are no loose shingles. If you have a sprinkler system for your yard, winterize it as well. Cover outdoor furniture or store it out of harm's way.
Finally - even though there is not a breath of a snow forecast - shop for supplies you know you will need in a snowstorm.
If you broke your snow shovel last year, get a new one, and if you need some chemical snow removal products, stock up on them. You can get to the hardware now but if we have one of those whopper snowstorms you could be limited in your travels.
These are just a few of the highlights one might consider when readying the house for cold weather.

What our clients say
It is Memorial Day weekend and these guys were not only available, they were quick to come to our aid when our AC stopped working in 90 degree weather. They are very knowledgeable and offered me my options and best solutions. They were very pleasant to work with and we definitely know who to call from now on for our heating, air conditioning or plumbing needs! Thank you guys so much!
Great Experience! I made an appointment the day of and the technician arrived on time. The technician diagnosed the problem, but didn't have the part in stock. He came back the next day and fixed any issues I had with the central air system. He was professional, courteous, super helpful and the price was fair. I'll recommend this service to family and friends in the area.
