How to keep your Florissant home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The chillier temperatures in Florissant will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine 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 cozy all winter long. If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air. Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air comes into 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 gaping or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape. These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy.
