The colder temperatures in Sandpoint will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you should realize you can 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 annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
- Weatherstripping — a lot 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. 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.
These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
