    Reasons to Winterize Your Home – Savings and Safety

    St. Louis, Mo., November 10, 2008 – As winter approaches and the cost of heating homes rises, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) urges consumers to take steps now to make their homes safer and warmer this season.

    Tips for Safety

    An annual inspection is recommended of your home heating system by a qualified heating contractor. Regular checks of the furnace and boiler should be performed, as well as checks of the electrical and mechanical components, thermostat controls and automatic safety switches. Make sure the furnace filter is clean. Ask that the heating contractor check the venting system for blockages such as birds’ nests, mortar and other materials which may have dislodged and could block toxic gases which can cause carbon monoxide poisoning when escaping.

    • A chimney sweep should be done to clean the chimney if the inspection reveals an accumulation of soot on chimney walls. Annually, chimneys should be checked and cleaned. Consider installing a screen over the chimney opening.
    • Clean the gutters and the ridge vents on the house. Clogged gutters can cause water to back up, and if the temperature drops below freezing, standing water will freeze causing the gutters to expand and contract and develop leaks. Clogged ridge vents will not allow for appropriate ventilation allowing air to stagnate and create an unhealthy environment.
    • Make sure smoke alarm and carbon monoxide detectors are in working order. Check the batteries in the devices regularly. If your alarms or detectors emit a light to signal they are working, make sure the light is on.

    Tips to Save Money

    • If you are in the market for a new heating system for your home, always check the EnergyGuide labels to compare the energy use or efficiency of the appliance. Purchasing a high-efficiency system, despite its higher cost, may save you money in time with its lower operating costs.
    • If you live in an area which allows you to choose your natural gas provider, shop around for the best prices on heating oil and gas. Ask your utility company about a budget billing plan to protect against sudden or unexpected price increases. These plans take the amount of energy you use during one year and then divide it into equal payments. At the end of the heating season, you pay any outstanding balance or your provider credits any over-payment to the next bill. If you are on a fixed income or having difficulty paying heating bills, contact the utility company and state and local governments which may have assistance plans to help you pay your heating bills.
    • Check the caulking around doors and windows. Peeling or cracking caulk allows heat to escape from houses. Insure that doors and windows close tightly and that there is no cold air entering the house.
    • Closing the doors to rooms you do not use can decrease energy usage. Installing ceiling fans can reduce heating costs since air circulation promotes greater heating efficiency. Make sure to prune shrubs which may block airflow to your heat pump.
    • Be aware of scams that claim to reduce heating costs but ultimately cost you money and provide nothing in return. Sellers offering other devices, gadgets, and energy-saving products also promise drastic reductions in home heating costs or extreme energy savings. Always read energy savings claims carefully and look for independent information about product performance. Avoid unsolicited door-to-door sales calls and high pressure sales pitches from contractors offering furnaces, windows, roofing and other home improvement projects. Remember the Federal Trade Commission’s cooling off rule gives you three business days to cancel a contract if you sign it in your home or at a location other than the contractor’s permanent place of business.
