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

The coldest temperatures in Marshalltown will be here for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with annual furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you comfortable in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service annually. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable throughout the winter.

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

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. You’d be surprised how many areas let hot or cold air leak out of your home.
  • 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. This simple task could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. They may permit 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.
