Despite what some of us might wish, winter is coming and the ensuing drop in temperature and rise in inclement weather is enough to make any apartment owner shudder. It’s important for St. Mary’s residents to observe this changing of the seasons carefully by taking necessary precautions to keep their apartments safe, warm, and energy efficient. That’s why The Apartments of Wildewood is here with a few tips on how to best prepare your St. Mary’s Apartment for winter.
Install Draft Dodgers
Cold breezes can make a normally temperate St. Mary’s Apartment feel frigid. Block these breezes by installing draft dodgers at door and window bases, which create an air blocking seal around imperfect apertures. Draft dodgers are easy to make but can also be purchased cheaply.
Run Your Heating System Through Its Paces
Take the time to be sure that your St. Mary’s Apartment’s heating system is working before seriously cold weather arrives, leaving you shivering in bed, waiting for repairs. If your heating system isn’t working properly, contact your landlord to get it fixed before the situation becomes dire.
Reverse Ceiling Fans
Believe it or not, the way your ceiling fan spins makes a great difference as to how it functions. Normally ceiling fans push air down, cooling a room. In the winter you can reverse them to pull hot up, raising the temperature and circulating your heat. Most fans have a reversal switch you can flip to help distribute warm air throughout your St. Mary’s apartment.
