The dropping temperatures in Macon aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s easy to daydream about the warmer weather, it’s important to remember that you can continue to be just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to complete annual furnace service.
We do have to note that there are few things that will provide 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 frigid winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them warm the entire season?
Already done with your annual furnace service? Here are a couple other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — many energy companies will provide an energy audit for your home so you can identify areas that need fixed. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to sneak out.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door, doors allow the opportunity for a lot of cold air to get in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you can still have air making its way inside. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be permitting cold air inside. If you find any concerns, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and may take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common culprits for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they could be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
