Winter Comfort Tips from Degree Residential

As winter blankets Fredericton in a layer of snow, the cold temperatures bring with them the need for warmth and comfort in our homes. At Degree Residential, we understand the importance of a reliable heating system during the chilly months. In this blog post, we’ll share our valuable tips to keep your home cozy and energy-efficient this winter. 

Schedule a Professional HVAC Inspection 

Before the winter chill sets in, it’s essential to ensure that your heating system is in optimal condition. Schedule a thorough inspection with Degree Residential’s experienced technicians. Our team will check for any potential issues, clean and maintain your HVAC system, and make necessary repairs to guarantee peak performance throughout the winter. 

Upgrade to Energy-Efficient Heating Solutions 

Consider upgrading your heating system to a more energy-efficient model. Degree Residential offers a range of high-efficiency HVAC solutions designed to keep your home warm while minimizing energy consumption. Our experts can guide you through the options, helping you choose the best system for your specific needs. 

Seal Gaps and Insulate 

A well-insulated home retains heat best, reducing the workload on your heating system. Check for drafts around windows, doors, and other openings, and seal them with weatherstripping or caulk. Additionally, proper insulation in your attic and walls can significantly contribute to maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature. 

Optimize Thermostat Settings 

Take advantage of programmable thermostats to optimize your heating system’s efficiency. Set the temperature lower when you’re away and higher when you’re at home. Degree Residential offers smart thermostat solutions that allow you to control your heating system remotely, providing both convenience and energy savings. 

Regularly Replace Air Filters 

Clogged and dirty air filters can hinder your heating system’s performance, leading to higher energy bills and potential damage. Regularly replace or clean your air filters to ensure optimal airflow and energy efficiency. Degree Residential can provide guidance on the appropriate filter replacements for your HVAC system. 

Utilize Zoning Systems

Zoning systems allow you to control the temperature in different areas of your home independently. This can be especially beneficial for larger homes or for those with varying heating needs in different rooms. Degree Residential can assess your home’s layout and recommend a zoning system that suits your preferences and lifestyle. 


At Degree Residential, we’re committed to ensuring your home remains a warm and comfortable haven during the winter months.
