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 be certain your home stays comfortable: Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air escape. Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air flows 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 gaping or damaged. This simple task could stop a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home. Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. They may allow a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
