Three Tips to Keep Your Williamsport Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The coldest temperatures in Williamsport are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • 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 worn out or damaged. There’s a good chance this could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy.
