The colder temperatures in Norco and St. Charles Parish will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.
You rely on your furnace to keep you warm 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 comfortable all winter long.
If you’ve already scheduled your routine furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This simple task 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
