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

The chillier temperatures in Brighton are here to stay for a while. You may be wishing for summer, but you deserve to be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it working well with routine furnace service.

You count 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 cozy 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 comfortable:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will complete an energy audit on your home to help you find areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a lot 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? Look at your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s worn out or damaged. There’s a good chance this could prevent a lot of cold air from finding its way inside your home.
  • Recessed lighting — recessed lighting is one of the most common problems. 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.

These tips will help a lot, but you can find many more tips to help keep your home warm and cozy. Or, give the experts at D & D Heating & AC a call at 720-316-1401 for more ideas and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t yet. You can also make an appointment with us online.
