The colder temperatures in Florissant will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.
You count 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 cozy all winter long.
If you’ve already had 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 complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes 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? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked 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 often makes home heating a bigger challenge. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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 warm and comfortable.
