10 Ways To Winterize Your Home

  1. Change dirty furnace filters
  2. Run ceiling fans in reverse – circulating air back into the living space can cut your heating costs by as much as 10%
  3. Caulk and weatherstrip – simple leaks can really zap your home’s efficiency.
  4. Winterize water lines
  5. Disconnect outdoor hoses
  6. Turn down water heater temperature – Lowering the temperature to 120 degrees F (or lower) would reduce your water heating costs by 6% to 10%.
  7. Get a heating system tune-up by HVAC professional
  8. Consider a window insulation kit for your windows – you may qualify for federal tax credit covering 30% of the cost up to $1,500 (check with your tax professional for details).
  9. Insulate your pipes – you may qualify for federal tax credit covering 30% of the cost up to $1,500 (check with your tax professional for details).
  10. Seal the ductwork – Properly sealing ducts can save the average home up to $140 annually, according to the American Solar Energy Society.
