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

The plummeting temperatures in Booneville aren’t going anywhere, and while it’s simple to dream about the warmer temps, it’s crucial to remember that you can remain just as comfortable during winter. Of course, your furnace plays a huge role in this, which is why it’s so crucial to keep up with annual furnace service.

We do have to bring up the fact that there are only a couple things that will provide as much to your comfort this year as a well-tuned furnace. That’s why furnace service is recommended be done annually. After all, who wants to spend a long winter not knowing if their furnace is going to keep them warm the entire season?

Already check off your annual furnace service? Here are a few other tasks you can do to help keep your home comfortable:

  • Energy audit — most energy companies will have an energy audit for your home so you can find areas that need addressed. You might be surprised what areas are allowing hot or cold air to escape.
  • Weatherstripping — regardless of which door it is, doors permit the opportunity for a lot of cold air to come in to your home. However, when your door is shut, you may still have air making its way in your home. Check to see if your weatherstripping is all good or if it’s worn, torn, or damaged in any other way that could be letting cold air inside. If you notice any concerns, weatherstripping is basic to switch out and can take care of the problem.
  • Recessed lighting — one of the most common places for air leaks can be your recessed lighting. Depending on the light’s age, they may be letting all the hot air in your home escape through your ceiling. Fixing this is as easy as sealing it with caulk or aluminum tape.

These handful tips are just the beginning, but do recognize that there are other easy fixes you can do once you’ve had annual furnace service completed. Many of them can be cost-effective and easy projects to complete on the weekend.
