The colder temperatures in Hasbrouck Heights will be here 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 operating well with routine furnace service.
You count on your furnace to keep you warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service every single 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, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air enters 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 slipping inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
