The colder temperatures in West Valley City are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with routine furnace service.
You rely 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 had your annual furnace service this year, we have 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 perform an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
- Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air enters your home when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. There’s a good chance this could block a lot of cold air from making its way 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.
