14 Ways to Have a Warmer Home this Winter

Cozy Fireplace and Mugs HVAC Services in Atlanta | Anytime HVAC

As winter’s chill sets in, it’s crucial to prepare your home to be a warm and reliable haven. At Anytime Heating, Cooling and Plumbing, we understand the importance of a safe, comfortable home. Follow these essential tips to ensure your home stays warm and efficient this winter season.

Firstly, inspect and seal any air leaks in your home with caulk and weather stripping on doors and windows. This simple step prevents cold drafts and keeps your warm air from escaping, ensuring your home is a fortress against the cold. Next, safeguard your water pipes from freezing temperatures by wrapping them in insulation sleeves, especially those in unheated areas like basements and crawl spaces.

Don’t forget about your hot water heater. Investing in an insulated cover can significantly improve its efficiency and longevity. Also, maintaining clean air filters in your furnace is crucial for optimal performance and air quality. We recommend changing them monthly to prevent any obstruction that could impair airflow and affect your respiratory health.

Ensure the safety of your household with the installation of carbon monoxide detectors on each floor, particularly near sleeping areas. Regularly check them to ensure they’re functioning correctly. As for your home’s aesthetics and comfort, switch to heavier curtains during the winter months. They act as an additional layer of insulation, keeping the warmth where you want it — inside.

Place rugs over tile or hardwood floors for an extra layer of insulation, making your home feel warmer and more inviting. However, never resort to unconventional heating methods like ovens or grills, as these can be hazardous and pose serious risks.

We recommend having your furnace professionally inspected by one of our Anytime Heating, Cooling and Plumbing technicians to ensure it’s operating safely and efficiently. The same goes for your fireplace; have it cleaned and inspected before use to prevent any potential hazards.

Remember to keep your chimney flue closed when not in use and ensure that no furniture or drapes obstruct your air vents. If you’re planning an extended getaway this winter, consider draining your water pipes to prevent any freezing issues. And a simple tip for overnight warmth: leave bathroom and kitchen cabinet doors slightly open to allow warm air to circulate around the pipes.
