The colder temperatures in Manassas will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.
You depend 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 comfortable no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, we have 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 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 lot of cold air enters your home through open doors. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This simple task could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair 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 warm and comfortable.
