The chillier temperatures in Pflugerville 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 running well with annual furnace service.
You rely 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 cozy throughout the winter.
If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, we have some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:
- Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do 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 escape.
- 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This simple task could block a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
- Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. 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 comfy and cozy. Or, give the experts at Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning a call at 512-355-1482 and we can help with that and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t yet.
