Three Tips to Keep Your Jefferson City Home Comfortable During the Winter Months

The coldest temperatures in Jefferson City will be here for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with annual furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service every single year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you cozy no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:

  • 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 amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into 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 gaping or damaged. This simple task could prevent 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 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 comfortable.
