The chillier temperatures in Georgetown will be here 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 operating well with regular furnace service.
You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 warm all winter long.
If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes into your home when doors are open. 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 simple task could block a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
