The colder temperatures in Marshfield will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you are able to be just as comfortable all winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You rely on your furnace to keep you warm 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 comfortable no matter how cold the winter gets.

If you’ve already had your annual furnace service this year, here are some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays cozy:

  • Have an energy audit — a lot of energy companies will do 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 when doors are open. But did you realize cold air could be sneaking in even when doors are shut? Check your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s gaping or damaged. This easy fix could stop a lot of cold air from slipping 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.
