The colder temperatures in York are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with regular 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 throughout the winter.
If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays cozy:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air flows into your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping 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 one of the most common problems. They may allow 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 comfy and cozy.
