The coldest temperatures in Derby will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout 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 comfortable all winter long.
If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform 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 lot 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? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix 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.
