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

The plummeting temperatures in Perry aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to daydream about the warmer temperatures, it’s critical to remember that you can stay just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so important to complete annual furnace service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this year 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 covered the entire season?

Already complete your annual furnace service? Here are a handful of 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 uncover areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are permitting hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of the door’s location, doors allow 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 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 basic to swap and could take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks may be your recessed lighting. Depending on how old your lights are, they may be letting all the hot air in your home get out through your ceiling. Fixing this is as basic as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These three tips are just a starting point, but do realize 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 things to complete on the weekend.
