As autumn rolls around once more in the Montgomery, Alabama, area, it is again time to prepare your home for the winter weather ahead. Maintaining your HVAC systems in optimal condition can help you to avoid unexpected breakdowns and emergency repair visits during the cold winter months. Incorporating a few simple tasks into your fall to-do list can pay big dividends in greater efficiency and a longer life for your heating and cooling system. Here are three proven ways to get ready for winter this year.

Weatherproof and Insulate
One of the most effective ways to increase the energy efficiency of your home is to reduce the amount of heat escaping through doors, windows, ceilings and floors. Adding weather stripping around windows and doors can help keep heated air inside and cold air outside. Similarly, installing insulation in attic spaces and under floors can provide added comfort inside while reducing the workload of your furnace or heat pump system. Best of all, you can save money on your utility bills while staying warm and comfortable all winter long
