Are You Prepared for the Cold Weather Ahead?

Are you ready for winter? The Vancouver/Portland area usually doesn’t much snow. But the Pacific Northwest definitely gets cold, wet and windy weather during the winter months.

That means preparing your home for the elements is a must. That’s especially true if you like saving money. It also makes you a lot more cozy and comfortable in your home.

Winterizing your home is important. And there are numerous things you can do to get your home ready for the cold. That includes taking measures to make sure your home stays warm. Obviously, you should check your insulation and make sure it’s up-to-date. Making sure your airflow is fluent and unblocked is also very important.

If the warm air can’t reach every room in your home, leaving some rooms feeling colder than others, there’s a chance your air ducts have some kind of blockage.

There could be a large object in the way. But it’s more likely your air ducts just need to be cleaned.

Dirt and other debris build up in your air ducts over time. That buildup impedes sufficient airflow. Another thing that leads to poor airflow is leaks. You can stop losing air from leaks by sealing your ducts at all the joints and anywhere else there might be leaks. Having clean air ducts with no holes is a very important part of keeping your home cozy and warm during the winter. Contact Better Air Northwestfor these services in Portland and Vancouver.
