How to keep your Carson City home comfortable this winter

The colder temperatures in Carson City will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you warm 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 cozy all winter long.

If you’ve already scheduled your annual furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • 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. There’s a good chance this 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix 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.
