Winter is Coming! Consider the below tips to help you prepare for the winter season, save energy and avoid complaints:

  • Have a qualified technician test, clean and adjust your heating equipment.

  • Check thermostat accuracy.
  • Identify and repair leaky or disconnected ducts.
  • Caulk cracks around windows, doors and other openings.
