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

The coldest temperatures in Westminster are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it running well with regular furnace service.

You rely 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 warm no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to make sure your home stays comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — quite a few energy companies will do an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas leak hot or cold air.
  • Weatherstripping — a great deal of cold air flows 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 worn out or damaged. There’s a good chance this 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 let a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix this problem with a little caulk or aluminum tape.

These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home comfy and cozy. Or, give the experts at True Heating & Cooling a call at 720-316-1898 to get more tips and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t yet. You can also make an appointment with us online.
