Get Ready for Winter: Residential Heating Services in WI


Autumn is often lauded as the most beautiful and loved season of the year in the Midwest.  The air is crisp, the leaves are breathtaking, and the buzz of the impending holiday season is settling in.  Schedules change, the temperature drops and our to-do lists take on an increasing amount of items to check off as we look forward to winter festivities.  In the hustle and bustle of the season, it can be easy to overlook items like maintenance of your home’s heat source.  Contact Earth Energy Systems, your go-to company for residential heating services in WI to get your home ready for the cold.

Whether you need some routine maintenance work done on your heating equipment or would like a checkup for efficiency, Earth Energy can help.  If you want to take some measures toward energy efficiency on your own, follow this checklist to begin getting your home winter ready.


Do a Leak-Check

Check around doors and windows, electric wall plugs, fireplace dampers, and heating ducts are all common sources of heat loss.  Invest in a little weather stripping, caulking, or or pre-cut foam gaskets to plug any spots cold air could sneak in.  For your furnace vents, get them properly repaired to prevent future leaks and energy loss.



Make sure your attic is insulated and seal up any holes that lead from your attic into the main part of your home.


Use Proper Light Bulbs

Making use of energy star approved light bulbs can save energy and it’s as simple as switching out your light bulbs.


These simple tips are a great step towards making your home more energy efficient and readying your space for the cold weather.  Most importantly, get your heating system checked to make sure everything is functioning properly and is ready to be turned on when you need it.  Contact Earth Energy, your premier provider of residential heating services in WI today!

Why an Outdoor Wood Stove Should be on Your Radar

I know, I know—it’s not quite mid-July.  Why am I breaking the unspoken northern-dwellers rule of pretending winter is a season far, far off in the distance?  Why would I bring up outdoor wood stoves when temperatures are still hovering in the 80s and 90s?

One word:  preparedness.  Being prepared for the upcoming winter season may not be the first thing on your mind the week after celebrating the Fourth of July, but this is the perfect time to get your home equipped for the cold that is coming.

About Outdoor Wood Stoves

Let’s talk about outdoor wood stoves.  An outdoor wood stove is a wood burning unit placed outside of the home that that heats via a boiler system.  This heat is transferred underground into your home and distributed throughout by way of your furnace blower.  Simple, effective, and efficient.

Advantages of Wood Heat

Why would you choose to heat your home with wood rather than a conventional propane, electric, or natural gas option?  A primary reason homeowners choose this route is financial.  Most of your winter utility bill can be eliminated with a wood burning stove and multiple buildings on your property (think garage or shed) can be heated with one stove.  Outdoor wood stoves are therefore an excellent choice for folks looking to heat outbuildings as well as their home in a budget friendly, affordable manner.

Considerations to Make

Some considerations to make when thinking about installing an outdoor wood stove:  do you have access to wood?  Do you have space to install the unit?  And if you live in a suburban area, you’re going to want to be sure that the unit you choose is neighbor friendly.  Cheaper units tend to emit more smoke than better models, which obviously becomes an issue when neighbors are in close proximity.

Here at Earth Energy Systems, we want to help you stay ahead of the game and be prepared for each coming season.  Outdoor wood stoves are one of your heating and cooling options and we’re here to serve you.  From Luck to Grantsburg, Danbury to Siren, Spooner to Hayward and beyond, Earth Energy has all of your Wisconsin heating and cooling needs covered.  Contact us today!
