The plummeting temperatures in Murrieta aren’t leaving, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual furnace service.
We do have to mention that there are few things that will offer as much to your comfort this year as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend a cold winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them covered the entire time?
Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a few other things you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — most energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need improving. You may be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of cold air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you could still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you find any problems, weatherstripping is easy to replace and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common areas for air leaks could be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they may be letting all the hot air in your home sneak out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These three tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other basic fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to do on the weekend.
