The coldest temperatures in Macon will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with annual furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 no matter how cold the winter gets.

  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air enters 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 easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
