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

The colder temperatures in Alliance will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air enters your home through open doors. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check 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 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.

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