The dipping temperatures in Tucker aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to complete annual furnace service.
We do have to mention that there aren’t many things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend a cold winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them comfortable the whole time?
Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — a lot of energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can uncover areas that need fixed. You may be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of cold air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in-tact or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you notice any problems, weatherstripping is easy to replace and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they could be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple of tips are just a place to start, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can do once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to do on the weekend.
