The chillier temperatures in Crystal and Twin Cities are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about 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 depend 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 no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air flows into your home through open doors. 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. There’s a good chance this could stop a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may allow 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 warm and cozy.
