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

November 24, 2015

The colder temperatures in Montoursville are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy all winter long.

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 — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air comes into your home when doors are open. 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 gaping or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. 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.

Use these tips as a starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy.
