The coldest temperatures in Muskogee will hang on for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running 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 annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm all winter long.
If you’ve already taken care of your annual furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays comfortable:
- Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- Weatherstripping — a lot 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 gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent 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 fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
