You rely on your furnace to keep you cozy in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter.
If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air enters your home when doors are open. 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 worn out or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
