With cooler weather upon us comes the inevitable promise of winter cold snaps. While this happens every year, North Dakotans need to get mentally prepared for the harsh conditions ahead.
Before this cold hits, the furnace heating your home needs attention. You never want to be in the position of a failing furnace during that first early winter blizzard.
Here are things you can do now to make sure your family stays warm during those cold and blustery days:
Another “must do” in the fall is to either install carbon monoxide detectors or replace the batteries in existing ones. Furnace malfunctions are the No. 1 cause of carbon monoxide poisoning in homes. This step is essential to making your home safe during heating months.
If you have questions about your heating system, it is always best to contact heating professionals. If you haven’t had a furnace inspection or tune-up in a few years, now may be the time. They are usually very reasonably priced, and can avoid costly repairs in the future.
And just as important, contact your Nodak Insurance Company agent for a “tune-up” and review of your homeowner’s insurance. Plus, a homeowner’s insurance review is free! There may be items that can be adjusted and added to your policy package that will also make you feel warm and secure through our upcoming North Dakota winter.
