The plummeting temperatures in Anaheim aren’t heading anywhere, and while it’s not hard to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a big role in this, which is why it’s so vital to complete annual furnace service.
We do have to mention that there are few things that will offer as much to your comfort this winter as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service should be completed 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 check off your annual furnace service? Here are a handful of other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:
- Energy audit — most energy companies will offer an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need improving. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
- Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of cold air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way indoors. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good 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 simple to switch out and can take care of the problem.
- Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they might be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.
These couple of tips are just a starting point, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can do once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy jobs to complete on the weekend.
