3 Tips to Keep the Hot Side Hot and the Cold Side Cold

Serving Brooklyn Since 1906

You’re probably thinking, what is there to know about keeping your Brooklyn home warm? Isn’t it just turning the thermostat up if you’re cold and down if you’re hot?

This snowy weather belongs outside, not chilling your home.

It turns out, a lot goes into keeping your home warm, and it goes well beyond your thermostat, into some of your home’s dark recesses that you never really think about. At Petri Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Drain Cleaning, we’re in the business of keeping your family warm, and we want to offer some advice that can help.

Fill the Gaps and Seams

Remember to check around the windows for gaps or seams. If they require additional caulk to close any gaps, run a thin bead to seal the window. A small change like that can save hundreds of dollars a year on heating costs if applied to every window in your home. Check the seals around your doors, and replace the rubber trim if necessary. If your windows are old, consider having them replaced with high-efficiency windows when possible. Also, check the insulation in your home. Gaps give freezing air a way inside, making your heating system work harder and wasting your hard-earned money. Check your attics, basements and crawl spaces to ensure they are properly insulated.

Check the Boiler

Finally, if your home is insulated and sealed, your heating system might just not be cutting it. If your boiler is more than 15-20 years old, it’s probably time to replace it. If not, it might just need a little preventative maintenance.
