How to keep your Chadron home comfortable this winter11/24/2015 The colder temperatures in Chadron 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 working well with annual furnace service. You depend 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 throughout the winter. If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain 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 comes into your home through open doors. 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. This simple task could block 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 permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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 comfortable.
