The chillier temperatures in Mobile are here to stay for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable during winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with routine 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 warm all winter long.

If you’ve already scheduled 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 — a lot of energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you identify areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air comes into your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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. This simple task could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is often makes home heating a bigger challenge. 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.
