Three Tips to Keep Your Carson City Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The colder temperatures in Carson City will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with annual furnace service.

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

If you’ve already scheduled your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure 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. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air enters your home through open doors. 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 a common problem with heating your home. 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 cozy.
