The colder temperatures in Central Point are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running 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 every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy throughout the winter.
If you’ve already had your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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 gaping or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.
