Three Tips to Keep Your Derby Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

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 during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with regular furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of 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 great deal 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from finding its way 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 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 cozy.
