The colder temperatures in Carson City will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating 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 every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy throughout the winter.
If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows 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 cracked or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from slipping 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.
These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy. Or, give the experts at Anderson Heating & A/C a call at 775-230-7628 to get more tips and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t already. You can also make an appointment with us online.
