The coldest temperatures in Excelsior Springs will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with annual furnace service.
You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 throughout the winter.
If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays cozy:
- Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may allow 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 warm and cozy.
