How to keep your Manassas Park home comfortable this winter

The chillier temperatures in Manassas Park will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 cozy throughout the winter.

If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air comes into 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 cracked or damaged. This easy fix could stop 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 fix 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.
