I can get the sealant and tools from the hardware store and save the leftover materials for the next time
Every year, when the Summer weeks begin to bleed into the fall weeks, I begin to prep our Heating and A/C plan for the seasonal change. In a matter of weeks, this region goes through a major temperature shift and I savor to have our air conditioning plan and oil furnace prepared. The first thing I do is hire an Heating and A/C professional to come service our entire Heating and A/C system. The Heating and A/C professional is responsible for inspecting the machine to make sure everything is toiling regularly and they also do some light tuning where needed. It’s essential for me to have an Heating and A/C tune up during this time because it ensures that our Heating and A/C machine is running as it should be. It’s the single best thing I can do to improve the lifespan of both our oil furnace and a/c. This year, along with hiring the Heating and A/C professional, I’ve also decided to go around and reseal the doors and windows. This is something I do every other year because our apartment is old and there are a lot of cracks that let the air escape. Even though I have a good Heating and A/C plan that runs efficiently, it’s inefficient for me to leave the cracks unsealed because it creates more labor for our Heating and A/C system. Sealing the doors and windows takes an entire day, but it’s a relatively simple task. I can get the sealant and tools from the hardware store and save the leftover materials for the next time. Doing this has made a giant difference in our Heating and A/C efficiency.
