Have You Winterized Your Home? | Tips On Winterizing Your Home

Georgia is known for its beautiful weather, but that doesn’t mean that winter in Metro Atlanta is a piece of cake. Cold snaps, icing and even the occasional snow can cause all types of problems for homeowners. Winterizing your home can help you be better prepared the harsh winter weather and help lower your heating costs. Here are a few things you can do to winterize your home:

CHANGE YOUR FURNACE FILTER: Help your furnace run effectively and efficiently all winter long by regularly changing your filter. You should also make sure you are keeping your furnace maintained and cleaned as well.

INSULATE YOUR WINDOWS: You can lose a lot of your home’s heat and be subject to icy cold drafts through your windows. Most hardware stores sell reasonably priced window insulation kits that can really help keep your heat where it belongs… in your home.

RUN YOUR CEILING FANS IN REVERSE: It may be counter-intuitive to run a fan in the winter, but running it in the reverse direction can actually warm your home. Running your ceiling fan clockwise will push the warm air along the ceiling downward.
