The chillier temperatures in Fort Lauderdale will hang on for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with routine furnace service.
You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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, we have some additional things you can do to ensure 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 shocking how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
- Weatherstripping — a lot 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 gaping or damaged. There’s a good chance this could block a lot of cold air from finding 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 repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
