The dipping temperatures in Payson aren’t leaving, and while it’s not hard to dream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a large role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete annual furnace service.
We do have to note that there are only a couple things that will contribute as much to your comfort this season as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is recommended be scheduled annually. After all, who wants to spend a cold winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them covered the whole time?
Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a handful of other jobs you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You could be surprised what areas are letting hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of cold air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is in working-order or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be allowing cold air inside. If you uncover any concerns, weatherstripping is easy to replace and could take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they might be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as simple as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple of tips are just a starting point, but do note that there are other simple fixes you can complete once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy things to complete on the weekend.
