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

November 24, 2015

The chillier temperatures in Marshfield will hang on 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 warm in winter. It’s important to keep it well-tuned with furnace service each year. When you take care of your furnace, it will take care of you and keep you comfortable throughout the winter.

If you’ve already had your regular furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to ensure your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s amazing how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot of cold air flows into 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. There’s a good chance this could stop a lot of cold air from slipping inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is a common problem with heating your home. They may permit a lot of warm air to escape through your ceiling. You can fix 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 comfy and cozy.
