Fall is a lovely time of year in Southern California that divides the sweltering heat from the coming cold. You can take advantage of this mild weather by performing a few key maintenance tasks that will save you money this winter.
Properly insulating your home is one of the best ways to ensure it is as energy efficient as possible. If your winter utility bills tend to spike in the winter, your home could benefit from additional insulation in one of these areas:
Even if you think the exterior of your home is in tip-top shape, you should still take a look around. The few minutes it takes to inspect your home could save you major money and headache later this winter. Here are a few specific areas you should check:
Before the cold weather comes, make sure your furnace or heat pump is ready with a professional tune-up. Regular heating tune-ups will save you money this winter in two ways. First, it will improve the efficiency of your furnace or heat pump. (In fact, if you get a furnace tune-up from Service Champions, we guarantee the tune-up will pay for itself.)
Second, a heating tune-up will keep you from calling a repairman later. Many calls we get from homeowners with heating problems could have been easily prevented with proper maintenance.
It’s easy to shrug off regular maintenance when everything is running fine, but doing so could cost you money later this winter. Avoid the headache and cost of problems in your home by getting these three fall maintenance tasks done.
