Three Tips to Keep Your Reinholds Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The coldest temperatures in Reinholds are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you warm throughout the winter.

If you’ve already taken care of your regular furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • 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 worn out or damaged. This easy fix 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
