SALT LAKE CITY – With cooling temperatures and winter just around the corner, contractors are warning Utahns to winterize their homes before the cold snap comes.

Buddy King with Same Day Heating and Air says that while winterizing a home can seem complicated, there are a few simple steps that can be taken to save time, money and energy.

King says the most common but costly mistake is not changing your filter. He says dirty filters restrict airflow and increase energy demand. Make sure you clean out your gutters and chimneys and make sure your garden is trimmed.
