Evanston, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/07/2019 -- February is the month of love. And for many homeowners, "home love" includes staying indoors during a bitter cold Chicago winter. After all, retreating to a cozy home after a cold day out and about is a true reprieve for many.
American Vintage Home wants to be sure all of its customers are keeping their vintage homes in proper shape this winter season. One way of doing this is by calling the older home experts when furnace repair in Chicago Northshore, IL, is needed. In addition to calls for furnace repair, American Vintage Home offers these additional tips for securing a warm home during a Chicago winter:
- Seal windows and doorframes by using weather stripping or caulk.
- Move sofas away from radiators and vents so airflow isn't blocked.
- Call for a tune-up to ensure a functioning system.
- Invest in a home service plan from American Vintage Home.
- Close your fireplace damper to prevent cold air from seeping into living spaces.
- Block drafts by placing draft dodgers at the bottom of doors.
