The coldest temperatures in Wharton will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.
You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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. There’s a good chance this could block a lot of cold air from finding its way 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
