Three Tips to Keep Your Manassas Park Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The chillier temperatures in Manassas Park will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating 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 every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable throughout the winter.

If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:

  • 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. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal 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 cracked or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
