How to keep your Wyandotte home comfortable this winter

The colder temperatures in Wyandotte will be here for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with regular 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 all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from making 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 rectify this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips are a good starting point, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy.
