The coldest temperatures in Chelan and Wenatchee will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with annual furnace service.
You rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.
If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home every time an exterior door is opened. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from making its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and comfortable.
