Having your home warm throughout the Marshfield winters is critical to your health and comfort. While you may not be able to entirely ignore the lowering temperature outside, there are ways that your comfort can be achieved with no trouble and without worrying about cold drafts. With regularly scheduled furnace service, you can help keep all the heat from your furnace in your home and save money on your monthly energy bills. It’s important to recognize all the ways in which heat (and your winter comfort) can leak from your home, so here are some of the normal forms we catch at House of Heating Incorporated:

  1. Lack of attic insulation – the older the home, the more outdated the insulation might be. Older insulation can decline faster and cause those leakages of heat, which could then mean that your furnace is running harder than it has to. Examining your insulation in your attic to see if it is installed accurately can demonstrate if you need more insulation and dodge impending future furnace repair.

  2. Window or door gaps – breaks or holes aren’t always apparent to the naked eye or great enough to feel cold drafts through, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t around. Weatherstripping can be an quick fix and can do the same thing as enhancing attic insulation – preparing your furnace to not work as hard and decreasing the chances of needing furnace repair.

  3. Losing heat from the glass of your windows – hot air and cold glass are an interesting mix. The hot air wastes some of its heat when it extends to a cold surface and exudes the feeling of “heat escaping” from the home. Closing window drapes in the course of the evening hours and pulling back drapes during sunny, daylight hours in the winter can help reduce this heat loss.

While these might not be the only explanations as to why your home is losing heat, there is a good probability that one of these circumstances could be your reality. But lucky for you, our pros at House of Heating Incorporated are here to offer you with more tricks to keep your home warm and comfortable all through the winter.
