The chillier temperatures in Chadron will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with annual furnace service.
You rely on your furnace to keep you warm 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 scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- 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? Check 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 finding 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 fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy.
