Three Tips to Keep Your Huntingburg Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

November 24, 2015

The colder temperatures in Huntingburg will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with annual furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter.

If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air comes into your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
