Preparing Your Florida Home’s Heating System for Winter

Although Florida winters are not near as daunting as what our northern friends experience, we can definitely experience some chilly temperatures, especially at the end and the beginning of the year. Even in Florida, it is important to prepare your home and your home’s heating system for winter. A little preparation goes a long way in saving you money and keeping your entire family comfortable throughout the season. Here are a few tips to help you prepare your Florida home’s heating system for winter:

  • INSULATION: Depending on the age of your home and/or how much insulation was used, you may be able to make some improvements, and now is a good time to do it. Over time many types of insulation lose their effectiveness or get destroyed by pests or weather damage. If you don’t feel equipped to inspect and analyze your home’s current insulation, reach out to a professional. We will come out to your home at no cost to you and provide you with any recommendations to improve your insulation.
  • CLEAN AND CHECK: Take a look outside at your HVAC unit and make sure nothing is in or around it. Carefully remove any debris and make sure there is sufficient space on all sides of the unit.
  • FILTERS: Your indoor air filters need to be changed every one to three months. Failing to do this will cause allergens and other debris to freely circulate throughout your home, compromising overall air quality. Additionally, a dirty filter can put unnecessary strain on the HVAC unit itself causing it to overwork and potentially break down. Changing your filters is an easy, low-cost way to prepare your home no matter the season.
  • CEILING FANS: Your fans put in a lot of work over the summer, but did you know if you reverse the direction the blades spin your fan can help you out during the winter too? When switched properly your ceiling fans will pull cool air toward the ceiling and push the warmer air toward the floor allowing your home to feel warmer even without putting on the heat!
  • MAINTENANCE: Have your heater evaluated by a professional before or during winter to help you catch minor problems that could turn into major issues. An expert technician will also be able to make improvements to your current system in order for it to run more efficiently, improve your indoor air quality and save you money in the long run on your energy bills.
