If you have not yet caught the flu during this rough season, consider yourself lucky. This is one of the worst years in memory for flu hospitalizations. It’s important to take every precaution you can to protect yourself, your kids, and all the people you see every day. Remember, the young and the elderly face much greater risks than you do, and you should do whatever you can to stay safe.
The CDC recommends, “Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season.” Because the flu shot may not be 100% effective, though, you may have to take additional measures. We recommend doing everything you can to prep your home, in order to protect your family.

Thankfully, learning to recognize signs of trouble can keep you safe, as can keeping your heating system properly maintained. Learn to spot your risk and keep it under control from our heating experts.

The air ducts are the gateway from your home’s air conditioner and heating system to the rooms of your home. The ductwork allows air to get sucked into the system in the first place and then to be distributed throughout the home as evenly as possible—if it’s in good shape.
But the fact of the matter is that most air ducts are not. The ductwork is likely something you know little about, even in your own home, and it could be bent out of shape (figuratively or literally). This is the first topic we’ll cover in our guide to what we think homeowners should know about the air ducts.
