What’s the weather gonna be like, this December, in DC? Should you prepare your HVAC unit, especially furnace, for the cold days to come?
According to a weather forecast, it’s not going to be particularly cold month. Still, you should be prepared ’cause the weather can be unpredictable. The daytime average temperature is expected to be somewhere around 10°C, but it might drop below freezing during the night. December in DC is considered cold with the average snowfall of 2.3”. So, the best advice is to dress in layers when you go out, but when it comes to your home, it is a completely different story.
For home comfort, you should schedule, an HVAC maintenance check-up to get the best furnace performance. As experienced technicians, we suggest regular winter maintenance such as: checking a heat pump, ducts, furnaces. Also, we recommend reparations or replacements if necessary.
One of the things that can bring you the benefit is installing a programmable thermostat which allows your furnace works only when you need it to, which saves you the money on your energy bill.
While you have technicians in your home preparing your unit for winter, you might as well schedule your spring check-ups just to be sure your HVAC system works impeccably.
There are, also, the things you can check up on your own to improve the coziness of your home:
-check out the insulation and
-seek out for drafty areas.
By doing so, you will make your home more energy efficient.
