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

The coldest temperatures in Wheeling are here to stay for a while. You may be thinking about summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with routine furnace service.

You depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 throughout the winter.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will do 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 leak out of your home.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount of cold air enters your home every time an exterior door is opened. 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 easy fix could prevent a lot of cold air from making 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 repair this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.
