Three Tips to Keep Your Saint Charles Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The chillier temperatures in Saint Charles are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with regular furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, here are 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. It’s shocking how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air flows into your home every time an exterior door is opened. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could block a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may allow 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.
