The coldest temperatures in Laurel will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.
You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays cozy:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- 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 cracked or damaged. This simple task could block a lot of cold air from slipping 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 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 comfy and cozy.
