November 24, 2015

The colder temperatures in Circleville will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.

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 comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do 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 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from finding 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
