You may be thinking about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with regular furnace service. You rely on your furnace to keep you cozy in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable throughout the winter. If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm: Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas leak hot or cold air. Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air enters your home through open doors. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape. These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
