Don’t Get Caught In The Cold – Winterize Your Colorado Home Now

Your HVAC unit—also called an outdoor or central air conditioner—keeps your home dry and cool during hot, humid months. As the warm summer days fade to chilly fall weather, it’s time to winterize the HVAC unit to safeguard against snow and ice. Winterizing your central air conditioner also prevents rust damage and keeps critters from nesting inside mechanical parts and we at Green Apple Mechanical can help you do just that.

Prepare your yard for the changing of the season!  To do this you want to make sure you have cleared out all overgrown and dead foliage. This will help things grow back nice and neat next spring.  You also should bust out the ladder and clean your gutters making sure to reach the ones on the top as well.

Turn it off and blow out the line! Shut off your outdoor water supply via the shutoff valve and blow out your sprinkler system by running it a few times without water.  Make sure to release the water pressure from the outdoor water pipes connected to the sprinkler as well to get rid of any remaining water while it is cycling.  You also want to disconnect your hoses and drain the existing water out of them so they are not damaged by freezing temperatures. If you have pipes that are exposed or run along a wall that is not insulated very well, you may also want to consider wrapping them with added insulation to prevent them from freezing.

Pay attention to your windows!  If you have storm windows, installing them could mean the difference of hundreds of dollars during the course of the season, so be sure to use them if you have them.  If you don’t have any, consider winterizing your windows instead.  There are several ways to go about this, from store-bought film liners to blankets and pillows, either way improving your windows’ efficiency in places you frequent the most will help you keep the thermostat down.

Give the furnace and air ducts a good check up!  Having your furnace, air ducts, and dryer lines serviced by a professional will help out a lot more than just in the winter.  It will further improve the efficiency of your system and your home’s air quality, as well as prevent potential fire hazards. You will want to change your furnace filter frequently during constant use to ensure that your systems will not fail and continue to run optimally. Along these same lines, you should also have your fireplace professionally cleaned before your first fire.

Get ready for sudden winter!  By putting away all your spring and summer stuff, replacing it with its winter counterpart, you will be prepared for when the first sudden snow or below zero morning hits.  Don’t be left scraping your car windows with a credit card because you could not find the scraper!  Instead, do an inventory and make sure you have your ice scraper, shovels, ice melt, windshield washer fluid, emergency car kit, and winter boots on hand.
