November 24, 2015

The colder temperatures in Huffman will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
