The coldest temperatures in Williamsport will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating 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 every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy throughout the winter.
If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure 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 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify 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 comfy and cozy.
