As Farmer’s Almanacs and weather centers across the Kansas City metro area call for a brutally cold and snowy winter, homeowners are already beginning to fire up their furnaces for the first time this year. The Kansas City Star is reporting that if AccuWeather’s predictions for the upcoming winter are correct the eastern half of Kansas especially will have above-normal amounts of snowfall.

So as we start to get the blankets out of the closet for the first time and snuggle up on the couch with some hot tea or cocoa homeowners may consider getting a head start on weatherization before the coldest part of the winter arrives. Insulating your attic, air sealing and tuning up your furnace are three easy ways to increase your home’s efficiency and make sure your family stays cozy on those bitterly cold nights.

In the winter the warm air your furnace is producing is lost out of the gaps and cracks in your home. This is especially true for the top portion of the home. Insulating and air sealing your attic can be one of the most valuable investments a homeowner can make. Proper installation of insulation is vital in order for the insulation to perform to its maximum capacity.
