The colder temperatures in Safford will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.
You count 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 comfortable all winter long.
If you’ve already had your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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 stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.
