The coldest temperatures in Oxford will be here 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 working 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 each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter.
If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes 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 cracked or damaged. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
