The dropping temperatures in Litchfield Park aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temps, it’s important to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual furnace service.
We do have to note that there aren’t many things that will provide as much to your comfort this winter as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service should be completed annually. After all, who wants to spend a cold winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them covered the whole time?
Already done with your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of cold air to make it’s way inside your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you notice any issues, weatherstripping is simple to swap and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on the age of your lights, they might be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These handful tips are just the beginning, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can do once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
