How to keep your Grove City home comfortable this winter

The coldest temperatures in Grove City will hang on for a while. You may be daydreaming about summer, but you should realize you can be just as comfortable throughout winter. Your furnace makes this possible, so keep it operating well with annual furnace service.

You count on your furnace to keep you cozy 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 cozy all winter long.

If you’ve already taken care of your routine furnace service this year, we’ve pulled together some additional things you can do to be certain your home stays warm:

  • Have an energy audit — you will find that many energy companies will perform an energy audit on your home to help you pinpoint areas that can improve. It’s shocking how many areas let hot or cold air escape.
  • Weatherstripping — a large amount 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? Inspect your weatherstripping and replace it if it’s cracked or damaged. This easy fix could prevent 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 repair 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 Air Quality Solutions a call at 614-871-4144 for more ideas and schedule your annual furnace service if you haven’t already. You can also make an appointment with us online.
